You might think chess is a sport for the older generation, but in the 80s everything changed. Young players started to rise to the top and within just a few years they were given the highest title in the sport - Grandmaster. It was unheard of.
Then, when one pre-teen broke the world record for youngest Grandmaster in history, suspicions started to arise about how these kids were getting so successful. And all the evidence pointed to one thing - their parents were bending the rules.

A Somethin' Else production.
