Searching for Sugar Man Overview

Relatively unknown to the rest of the world, musician Rodriguez was once the most popular musician in South Africa. Standing for anti-establishment through his lyrics on Cold Fact (1970), his songs were the anthem for a generation of revolutionary people standing up against Apartheid.

He was rumored to have committed suicide, but two devoted fans set out to find the truth, and in a twist of fate, find their hero.
