Selected to the official selection of Cannes 2020 and praised by the critics, Sweat depicts three days in the life of fitness influencer Sylwia, giving us an exciting look behind the scenes of the fascinating online culture. Energetic and dedicated, Sylwia’s public persona is bursting with positivity. She is her own creation. In the privacy of her home, her bubbly personality turns into a cold remoteness and unveils an empty void beneath the carefully managed facade. Even though she’s surrounded by loyal employees and hundreds of thousands of followers, Sylwia yearns to experience true intimacy. When she shares her feelings of loneliness with her fans, she gets more than she expected.
