The Bobby Fischer Trap

Two Chess grandmasters play a private game between tournaments with a high-value bet on the table. Casey (Connor Solomon) is a chess prodigy on his way to play in the World Chess Championship, and no one has been able to beat the young chess whiz. Will his winning streak come to an end with an unrated game against a rival grandmaster?

Watch the short film.
