And it’s very good.
So , it is actually related to CHESS??or is just part of the story?
Yes, it’s the fictional dramatisation of a young orphaned female chess prodigy set in the late 50s and 60s. Lavish attention to period detail. Knowledge of chess isn’t essential to appreciate it – but doesn’t detract either!

Do you know if the games they play are real games? How did Any manage to memorize the lines, especially for the blitz games?
The last one is actually partially a real game, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIMaTKOZG-8 for analysis.
