The Chess Player
Imprisoned in solitary confinement by Nazis, a stolen book of chess games becomes The Prisoner's only way to cling to sanity. Fighting madness, he chooses schizophrenia, surviving by dividing his mind into two feuding chess masters. After his escape, he dares to walk the edge of a volcano of madness as he challenges the greatest chess player in the world to a match in Richard McElvain's reimagining of Stefan Zweig's classic.
