Set towards the end of the cold war, Chess uses politics and sport as metaphor for a love triangle between a enfant-terrible American superstar, his Hungarian-born lover/second, and a Soviet player looking to start a new life. Featuring such hits as “One Night in Bangkok”, “Nobody’s Side”, and “I know Him So Well” the eclectic score ranges from classical to rock, and the plot spans across the world as these players try balance their public and private personas.
