The truth can be stranger and more satisfying than fiction, as is the case with the true story told in Searching for Sugar Man. An obscure Detroit singer/songwriter named Rodriguez made two albums in the early 1970s and then disappeared. Unknown in America, Rodriguez's music was discovered by South Africans, for whom Rodriguez became as popular as the Beatles. When some of Rodriguez's most avid fans set out to determine how and where he died, they were in for the surprise of their lives. Searching for Sugar Man is "an electrifying illustration of music's power to inspire and change lives on booth sides of the footlights." --Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune.
