One of the most successful Estonian movies of 2019, Chasing Unicorns is a semi-satirical narrative feature about a female founder trying to make it in a male-dominated tech world, from Estonia to Silicon Valley. Based on real-life stories of startups, Chasing Unicorns follows Õie, a young book-keeper from a small town, who by accident stumbles into a tech scene of her home-country Estonia - a country where making startups is a “national sport” and where everyone has one. He is joined by a serial failure called Tõnu, who has gone bankrupt with each one of his companies but keeps trying again. Inspired by Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Mark Zuckerberg, they embark on a journey to take on the tech world.
