"99% of the people in the world are looking for a party. The other 1% are the party". A line by one of the characters in the new release film We Are Your Friends sums up the dreams and aspirations of the title character Cole Carter (Zac Efron) as he tries to make it big in the DJing industry.
As the 23-year-old struggles to break out in the electronic house music scene, his well-intentioned but unsuccessful friends are unable to help him achieve stardom.
Cole meets a successful DJ named James (Wes Bentley) who becomes a close friend and mentor. He gives Cole advice and guidance and provides him with opportunities Cole could only dream of.
