In Spent, De Swarte portrays Mia, a former catwalk model whose life takes an unexpected turn. Mia finds herself broke, homeless, and on the run from her past. Despite her humble beginnings, Mia has become accustomed to the finer things in life, but now she must confront the reality of her situation. She navigates her new circumstances with a mix of high-end taste and financial constraints, all while denying the truth even to herself.
