A chess grandmaster is in a big tournament, and when his lover is found painted up and the blood drained out of her body he becomes a chief suspect. After he gets a call from the killer urging him to try and figure out the game, he cooperates with police and a psychologist to try and catch the killer, but doubts linger about the grandmaster's innocence as the string of grisly murders continues.

I've always wanted to learn how to play chess. It seems like a complicated game.
Well, not really. You see your goal and go after it. Anything that gets in the way is an obstacle and must be destroyed.
Sounds very violent...
Chess is a reflexion of life, life is violent. The strong win, the weak perish.
You enjoy being the stronger one?
If you're asking me if I'm passionate about what I do, the answer is yes. Without passion, nothing moves us.
