Plot Summary: Hoping to entrap Maria von Gall, who runs a courageous underground railroad for Jews in France, the Nazis kidnap her son Thomas, a brilliant 11-year-old chess master. An exchange arrangement goes awry and he sees her die in a hail of bullets; but he is rescued by his American father, played by Stephen Moyer, whom he has never met before, and who plans to flee with him to Spain. However, Queen Maria had solemnly entrusted her little pawn Thomas with a precious secret and a terrifying mission, and it was time for him to move. A pawn may become an important piece by slowly, quietly advancing all the way through the enemy’s ranks. Or a pawn may die trying. Retreat is what a pawn can never do. Notable quote: David Quatermain: Anyone who’s killed love within himself is capable of doing evil, filling other people’s lives with misery.
