An extraordinary coming-of-age story from Latvia which had its World Premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

With strobe lights and a thumping techno soundtrack, NEON SPRING chronicles two months in the life of Laine, a college girl from a bland middle-class suburb in Latvia. As Laine’s father distances himself from his crumbling marriage and his family, Laine is unable to cope with the separation and discovers the edgy Riga party scene, where she falls in love with seasoned raver Gunda. Going from rave to rave, the girls journey into a drug-fuelled underworld of anarchy, freedom and exploration.
