Luke is an up-and-coming DJ from an affluent New York family with a Lithuanian father and an African-American mother. When Luke hears from an estranged grandmother in Lithuania, he defies his parents and decides to visit this far-away country, flying straight to the capital city Vilnius. He falls in love with the city, a rebellious girl called Marta, and the local music scene - the beatmakers - promoted by an aggressive gay manager, Andy. Luke's grandma's connections get him a deal with the municipality to become the manager of a new nightclub, and he takes up the challenge... but the deal turns out to be poisoned, forcing Luke to rebel in ways he never imagined.Written by
The first thing that made me fancy the film was the modern look, the quality, the sound and especially the soundtrack of the overall film. It really accurately encompasses Eastern European country issues, which are shown in this film. Some out-of-the-ordinary situations, which are usually ignored by the local people and even provoking to them: racism, sexism, homophobia, corruption to some extent. It also describes American fighter spirit, which long-term oppressed Eastern Europeans often lack and inspires leadership, standing up for yourself, recovering from the self-influenced fears and criticism. It really shows all of the above things from a very positive and beautiful perspective. Loved it!
