A black woman goes to work for an old widow, who is extremely racist, generating a great conflict that is sometimes tense and dramatic and other times funny. The two begin real battles on the chessboard, which, in the film, are pictured in a funny, magical form, as the pair is literally transported onto a giant chessboard, in a symbolical metaphor, which will show the duel that occurs between the black and white people.
