Magnus Carlsen was very different from his peers. He usually sat by himself, lost in thought, and his parents, Henrik and Sigrun, were concerned about his relative development. When a strong interest in numbers made them realize that he could become a good chess player, they introduced him to the game at the tender age of 5. In 2004, when Magnus was 13 years old, he made a decision: he would become the World Chess Champion. The coming of age story unfolds as we follow the prodigy as he battles his way through the ranks of chess masters through personal sacrifice and with the help of special friendships and a caring family.
