Pawn Sacrifice

Description
During the Cold War, the man named Bobbie Fischer, a skillful chess player, finds himself facing two great powers. Bobbie began to enter the biggest challenge in the game he excelled in when he challenged the Soviet empire and the greatest Soviet player, Boris Spassky, at the 1972 World Chess Championships. It was a tournament that was a real history and a big challenge for Fischer.
