Young Josh is like most kids his age, except for one thing: he is an undeniable chess prodigy. Beating far older players, Josh demonstrates a rare ability for the game, prompting his father to hire a renowned chess coach named Bruce Pandolfini to help Josh reach his full potential. Josh, meanwhile, prefers the company of sidewalk chess players in New York, especially Vinnie, who befriends Josh and teaches him “speed” chess. His coach, however, has other things in mind for Josh.
