Nine year-old orphan Beth Harmon hushes up, dismal, and by all appearances mediocre. That is, until she plays her first round of chess. Her faculties develop more honed, her reasoning more clear, and without precedent for her life she feels herself completely in charge. By the age of sixteen, she’s going after the U.S. Open title. In any case, as Beth sharpens her abilities on the expert circuit, the stakes get higher, her confinement develops all the more startling, and the idea of departure turns into all the all the more enticing. In view of the book by Walter Tevis.
