The World Chess Championship is an epic battle, rife with passion, power, and money. Boris Gelfand- the first Israeli to compete for the title- has spent his entire life getting ready for this moment. His father devoted himself almost exclusively to developing Boris' talent, while documenting the whole process with a thick catalog of photos, videos and diary entries. Peeking into the life of certified genius, we are offered unparalleled insight into the preparation, sacrifice, and dedication necessary to achieve one's life goals.
