Traveling through Latin America, Miguelito explores the myth of an eleven year old Puerto Rican salsa singer who in 1973 was discovered by legendary record producer Harvey Averne, Miguelito recorded the album Canto a Borinquen and played at Madison Square Garden in front of twenty thousand people and then mysteriously disappeared. Told by followers, fans, and great connoisseurs and lovers of his music, this film traces the inexplicable disappearance of Miguelito and the rediscovery of his life, his music and the world in which he lived decades later.
