NEON SPRING (in post-production)

105 min, coming-of-age/drama

Laine’s (20) parents separate – her father becomes emotionally estranged and her brother Bruno (10) is having trouble at school, but she isn’t ready to take up mother’s duties. On a drugged-up rave, Laine befriends seasoned partygoer Gunda (21). Their relationship suddenly and unexpectedly becomes intimate. The neon spring of Riga’s techno scene blossoms, and Laine begins to question her sexuality and identity at a time when her family is falling apart. She finds her escape in the drugs, clubs, festivals and afterparties as she struggles to hold together her dissolving relationship with reality.
