His future as a chess prodigy is threatened by his growing interest in the 26 whose local leader is grooming him as a potential member. When the father he's never known is released from prison, things get complicated as dad is a reformed general in the 28, and is now back in his old neighbourhood, which is 26 territory. In English and Afrikaans with English subtitles.
