Experiencing Interruptions?

Chasing a Million

Can you make a fortune by swapping one thing for another? Albert and Stefan believe it can be done. They start their experiment with a free rabbit from internet. What follows is an unusual and highly unpredictable adventure. Within three years - and against all odds - they swop to a luxurious apartment on a ski-slope.

It started out as an innocent adventure. But as the stakes get higher, things become more complicated. Eventually both men decide to travel to Las Vegas. Will they succeed in their attempt to get rich without putting in a single day of work? Or will this adventure leave them empty-handed?
