As ludicrous as it may sound, there existed a time when David Bowie was just a young prodigy and not a glowing music dandy. It’s the year 1971, and 24-year-old Bowie embarks on his first trip to America that soon evolves into a journey of self-discovery and introspection. An inventive biopic that takes a furtive glimpse at the unseen moments that inspired the birth of Ziggy Stardust, while capturing a turning point of upcoming greatness: when Bowie rose to fame, becoming the Messiah of glam rock.
