Smile

Fiction Series 8x52'

A fresh POV-look behind the scenes of reality-TV.

Two small time friends join a televised singing contest to become rich and famous, and win thanks to their underdog position. Their management forces them to front a boyband and tour Belgium’s not-so-glamorous studios and stages. When the Instagram fame goes to their heads, and death crosses their path, their worlds start to crumble as they see their dreams shattered and their friendship forever changed.
