In 1971, a young David Bowie was sent to America to promote his newest record, The Man Who Sold the World. Leaving behind Angie, his pregnant wife, Bowie and his band embark on a makeshift coast-to-coast promotional tour. Stateside, he met an audience that’s not yet ready for him. During the tumultuous journey, the musician slowly begins to realize a need to reinvent himself in order to truly become himself; it’s with that realization that his iconic, celestial alter ego Ziggy Stardust is born.
