In this hilarious and heartfelt look at love and heartbreak as a young adult, Sweethurt follows Jacob (Rav Ratnayake), who embarks on a road-trip to a small, beach-side town with his two best friends Mike and Drew, (Mehdy Salameh, Logan Webster) as well as his sociopath sister, Abby (Sam Germain), for what promises to be a fun weekend of going through their newly-deceased grandfather’s stuff – but upon arrival, Jacob’s true motivations are revealed; his ex-girlfriend, Olivia (Alannah Robertson), lives in the town, and Jacob wants one last shot at probably disappointing her again. Meanwhile, Skye (Tyra Cartledge) has just had her heart broken, and the only one who can pick up the pieces is her best friend Carly (Rhiaan Marquez) – together, they go on a voyage through the night as Skye struggles with her burgeoning sexuality, having to deal with perverts, pirates, and worst of all – her parents. There is also a baby goat, of course.

Sweethurt was written and produced by Tom Danger and Logan Webster and directed by Tom Danger. The film stars Rav Ratnayake, Tyra Cartledge, Rhiaan Marquez, Mehdy Salameh, Logan Webster, Sam Germain, Dylan Lee, Alannah Robertson, Will Coghlan, and Ralphie the Goat as Wynston the Goat. Sweethurt screened at Byron Bay Underground Film Festival, New Jersey International Film Festival, and Sydney Underground Film Festival.

The film features a pop-punky, fist-pumping, skateboardy soundtrack, evoking the ripped-jean vibes of the late 90s/early 2000s. Sweethurt features pop-rock legends Third Eye Blind, current glam-rock megastars The Struts, underground pop-punk royalty Mest, as well as a collection of modern and classic bands from all over the world, creating a nostalgia-soaked instant classic of young adult angst, romance, friendship and partying until you pass out.
