The ruling world chess champion won the title at the age of thirteen. The reputation of this unique genius, now twenty-six-year-old Magnus Carlsen, has since surpassed the world of the royal game. The documentary maps the life of the bullied prodigy from Norway who has become a global superstar. A fascinating drama from the highest levels of chess tournaments and an insight into the workings of one of today's most ingenious minds.
