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.

User Reviews

reality in the country loads of problems, but few of them extremely important for Democratic EU Country
26 October 2013 | by my-i-poolSee all my reviews

Having feelings, talent, bravery, understanding of beauty, etc. the Director transfer them to the movie 'We Will Riot"! Very specific, unique elements of Lithuanian culture was shown to the audience in it good perspective. Crystallising the bad elements in Lithuania: RACISM, HOMOPHOBIA, CORRUPTION is not unique, but radically different from a 'normal' scale in Western Culture. I was glad to support $2 watching this movie guessing that it created by a person experienced these feelings from very deep inside! This movie, that makes me think after and proud of everyone who was involved creating it! Hope that you will not SKIP this and will watch this movie and will try to understand from these people point of view? or if you already seen it together with UNDERSTAND it PLEASE make your review, too.
