Chasing Great follows Richie McCaw through his final season as he attempts the goal of captaining the All Blacks to the first ever-back-to back Rugby World Cup Wins. Woven through that final season the film tells the story of Richie's life. With unprecedented access to Richie and a remarkable family video archive 'Chasing Great' is the story of how a shy farm boy went on to be one of the greatest rugby players of all time. Until now Richie McCaw's achievements have been well documented but little is known about the man himself. 'Chasing Great' takes the audience inside his world. What emerges is a very personal insight into high level international sport and a psychological profile of the mind of a champion.
