Millennial couple André and Vera have developed an app for women and their health problems. Now they need to find investors willing to fund their project. To do so, they have signed up for Shake Up, a seminar where they can pitch their project to potential financiers. They take this very seriously, so they decide to attend an intensive training programme where startups learn how to pitch effectively. A day before the training weekend starts, Vera joins a hypnotherapy session to get rid of her smoking addiction. And it works, but perhaps not quite as anticipated, as it turns out she has not only gotten rid of her addiction; she has become a lot freer in every way.

What is sincere and what is hypocritical? In this sharp and very witty satire, debutant director Ernst De Geer holds up a mirror to the optimistic and bubbly world of the young entrepreneur; disillusionment all around. Starring Asta August and Herbert Nordrum.
