A former speed-chess champion struggling with bipolar disorder (Cliff Curtis) takes over as coach of a chess team for at-risk youth, in the inspirational true story of New Zealand chess legend Genesis Potini.
The Dark Horse is an inspiring true story based on the life of a charismatic, brilliant but little-known New Zealand chess champion, Genesis Potini. It's a provocative, emotionally-charged drama about a man who searches for the courage to lead, despite his own struggles — finding purpose and hope in passing on his gift to the children of his community.
