Germany | 2011

Synopsis
The German women’s national chess team goes to the Chess Olympiad. The goal: Top Ten. The team consists of very different individuals: while Elisabeth, former chess prodigy and Germany’s only female pro, has played for the national team many times, Melanie and Sarah take part in such an important tournament for the first time. Soon the younger players turn out to have problems dealing with the pressure. Gradually tensions arise in the group, and it goes from bad to worse. A documentary about
winning and losing in a sport in which players fight with the sharpest weapon: the mind.
