      Another true story of Chess madness

      To enjoy chess you have to suffer a little madness.This is a story of redemption. A man save by his love of the game and sharing the chess fever to trouble youth who eventually became champion. The settings is in New Zealand Some placement of the chess clock is wrong in the movie, it should be in the right hand of th ed black player not on the left. They probably do it for cinematic effects but the rules should be followed specially in tournament settings.
