40 min.DK/Documentary

Across the world men participate in courses to get success and become better at seducing women. At Speed Up Life Academy Simon and Rune hope they will learn this in four months. Simon and Rune are 20 years old and from the countryside. They live a fairly ordinary life but want more. They want success, passion, hot babes and wealth. Speed Up Life Academy is run by the charismatic 22 years old Neil. He's inspired by the American book "The Game" that describes men's systematic use of various seducing techniques. "Chasing Success" is a film about masculinity today and the focus on success and individual development.
