Sixto Diaz Rodriguez had the kind of musical career that every aspiring rock star fears -- praised by critics but overlooked by the public, he released two albums before unceremoniously disappearing from the spotlight. But while sales of Rodriguez's debut CD fell flat in the U.S., overseas the fans couldn't get enough. When his second album became a hit overseas, a pair of devoted fans took it upon themselves to uncover the facts surrounding the mysterious musician, and got the surprise of a lifetime while attempting to track the profits from his record sales.
A winning musical detective story. - Variety
