    Winner of six audience awards, the film is the remarkable and improbable true story of I.S. 318 in Brooklyn — an inner-city school where more than 65% of students are from homes with incomes below the federal poverty level — that also happens to have the best, most winning junior high school chess team in the country. In fact, if Albert Einstein, who was rated 1800, were to join the team, he'd only rank fifth best. Chess has transformed the school from a "school in need of improvement" to one of New York City's best. But a series of recession-driven pubic school budget cuts now threaten to undermine those hard-won successes.
