Based on the life of chess prodigy chess, Joshua Waitzkin, this biopic centers a seven year old who becomes interested in speed chess at the park and learns the game from a hustler named Vinnie (Laurence Fishburne). His parents invest in a famous coach (Ben Kingsley), who has very different practices. Between Bruce's methods and the stress of the competitions, the boy learns that even a chess prodigy cannot make all the right moves.
