Three days in the life of fitness motivator Sylwia Zajac, a social media celebrity surrounded by loyal employees and admirers, who is really looking for true intimacy.

Without a doubt, young, fresh, and effortlessly sexy Sylwia, a famous social media influencer and motivational fitness guru, is on top of her game. Oozing with energy and optimism, the athletic, obsessively self-promoting blonde messiah of fitness leads entire workout classes to ecstasy and self-acceptance, having managed to amass an army of die-hard followers. However, who can believe that deep-seated sadness resides in Sylwia’s soul? For instance, who knows what Sylwia is doing between her posts, apart from posing for glamorous magazines and promoting her sponsors’ products? And, what happens if one of Sylwia’s fans is interested in much more than learning how to burn stubborn fat? — Nick Riganas
