This is a fictionalized account of the life and career of world chess champion Alexander Alekhine. Born into Russian nobility, Alekhine lost his family and nearly his life to the Bolsheviks before becoming the world's most powerful chess player. The coming of World War II placed the chess master in a difficult position, forcing him to collaborate with the Nazis. Desperate to win back his credibility after the war, Alekhine was preparing for the redemptive title match at the time of his sudden death.
