This highly entertaining, semi-satirical narrative feature revolves around a determined woman entrepreneur trying to make it in a male-dominated tech world, from Europe to Silicon Valley. Based on real-life stories of European start-ups, Chasing Unicorns follows Õie, a young bookkeeper from a small town, who by accident stumbles into the emerging tech scene of her home-country, Estonia. She is soon joined by serial failure Tõnu, who has gone bankrupt with each one of his companies but is nevertheless always trying again. Inspired by all the Musks, Bezoses, and Zuckerbergs of the world, and convinced they can make it big, too, the duo embarks on a bold (and just a wee bit quixotic?) journey to take on Silicon Valley.

Ce film narratif semi-satirique des plus divertissants raconte l’histoire d’une entrepreneure en technologie de pointe déterminée qui tente de percer dans un monde de technologie dominé par les hommes, de l’Europe à la Silicon Valley. Inspiré d’histoires vraies d’entreprises en démarrage européennes, Chasing Unicorns suit Õie, une jeune comptable dans un petit village, qui se retrouve accidentellement dans la scène de la technologie de son pays natal, l’Estonie. Se joint bientôt à elle Tõnu, qui collectionne les échecs et a fait faillite avec chacune de ses compagnies, mais qui continue de persévérer. Inspirés par tous les Musk, les Bezos et les Zuckerberg de ce monde, et convaincus qu’ils peuvent eux aussi connaître le succès, ils s’embarquent dans une brave aventure (peut-être un brin chimérique?) afin de conquérir la Silicon Valley.
