Fitness influencer Sylwia (Magdalena Koleśnik) seemingly has it made, with a devoted social media following and lucrative endorsement deals. But as she starts to share more and more online, the rising pressure forces her to confront the exhaustive demands of her lifestyle.
The breakout second feature from Magnus von Horn, Sweat is a shocking glimpse beneath the candy-colored surface of internet celebrity. Told with the intensity of a thriller, this dynamic drama reveals the repercussions of our digital culture and our need for true connection.
