As a music lover I was easily drawn to the film even during the first few scenes,  the electronic and hip beats and music is pleasing to the ears.  The story may not be that unusual but director and writer Romas Zabarauskas does have great ideas although I had to admit there was something quite lacking in the acting portrayals of some of the actors.  Luke played by Ebeneezer Nii Sowah lacked the depth and intensity in some of the scenes and that particular scene where he discovered about his granny and he was shedding tears a lot was quite puzzling,  the volume of tears falling was quite unnatural as the face didn't register much expression at all.  Nonetheless this film is worth checking out especially for music buffs out there.
