After Tee wins his first tournament in a library, The moderator declares that he has been disqualified because the parent signature was obviously forged by a child. It is impossible to tell the signature of a 16 year old or older teen from a 45 year old parent let alone one who was possibly illiterate and clearly drug addicted as Tee's mother was. While the Moderator could have made his claim, it is unlikely that 20 seconds would not be put forth by someone challenging the faulty logic.

In this family friendly drama, we experience something more than just a board game. We discover that chess can become a helping tool to support life. Eugene brown was a ex con who founded a chess club for at risk teens in the 1990's, this movie shows and gives out two messages think before you move and visualize the possible outcomes in life. It sends a good message to teens that are struggling in everyday life but that perseverance can payoff and that sometimes following the simple rules can be better than just winning. What i liked and found fascinating about this drama was that it not only showed how no matter what you've been through their is always a way out to a better life. As well as it sends out a heart warming message to not just teens but adults to.
