Nico Albert is a teenager with a peculiar character, exceptional intelligence and an only obsession: chess. Carlos and Coral, his parents, worried about their son’s weird attitude decide to hire Julio Beltrán, a children psychologist. Through therapy and their common love for chess, Julio will plunge into Nico’s disquieting inner world and the complex relations within this apparently ordinary family.
