You’re completely lost; you have no voice; you feel that life has no meaning for you. What do you do? For Michael Rubenstone, the only option was to turn to music – more specifically, the legend that is Sly Stone. Unlucky in love and at work, Michael moves to California to try to make a film about his hero (he figures that if he can’t find the film he wants to see, then he has to make it). Although completely inexperienced in making films, Michael’s passion and enthusiasm are deeply infectious, compelling many of the people he meets, from top artists to influential producers, to help him on his way. With fast-moving shots and raw-looking footage, On the Sly: In Search of the Family Stone takes you on two separate journeys that conclude in a surprising finale that will keep you smiling for days.
