Three days in the life of a popular fitness motivator whose world is turned upside down when an Instagram post revealing her innermost feelings goes viral.
Sylwia, a 30-year-old workout motivator living in Warsaw has gained celebrity status due to her avid use of social media. She is self-made and hard working, on one hand keeping her own body in the best possible shape as well as inspiring thousands of others to do the same. When an Instagram post where she confesses to feeling lonely goes viral, a stalker appears outside her apartment. Sylwia tries to ignore the stalker and stick to her busy schedule but when his attempts to contact her become more and more vulgar she finds it difficult to remain positive and smiling. When giving a live performance on Breakfast TV Show, Sylwia opens up and speaks from the heart. For a moment she knows exactly who she is and what’s important in life.
