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 battling his way through the ranks of chess, with personal sacrifices, special friendships and a caring family. “Magnus” is a character-driven drama that is bound to engage non-chess players, as well as the over 600 million people who play chess all over the world.
