Summary: Lovely, repressed and quietly intelligent, French chambermaid Hélène discovers she has a knack for chess. This obsession—much to the chagrin of her husband and teenaged daughter—leads her to seek the clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor—a liaison that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives.
