Plot Summary
Bizarre, robotic, alien, outrageous, androgynous: all these words apply to 1980s German singer Klaus Nomi, the subject of this documentary. Nomi arrives in New York City with a background in German classical opera, which he channels into a strange but mesmerizing rock act quickly embraced by the avant garde and the punk scene. A cult develops around his performances, and he lands an appearance with David Bowie on TV. But, before his career can take off, tragedy strikes in the form of AIDS.
