Chasing Unicorns follows Õie, a young book-keeper from a small town, who by accident stumbles into a tech scene of her home-country where making startups is a “national sport“ and where everyone has one. He is joined by a serial failure Tõnu, who has gone bankrupt with each one of his companies but is nevertheless always trying again. Meeting at a hackathon, and inspired by Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, they embark on a journey to take on the tech world.
