A film about the eighth, the young, the champion of the world chess Mikhail tal – one of the most famous residents of Riga, whose 80th anniversary was celebrated in last year.
the Director about the film: "Even 30 years ago stop a man on the streets of Riga and ask who is tal, would answer each. And today from all children interviewed by us – chess players - Russians and Latvians-only one knew who such tal. I think, it's wrong. We have a small country and such the scale of personalities was a little. And to the whole Riga in complete euphoria went outside – such it happened, maybe, only during the proclamation independences. No wonder the Board reflecting the historic match of tal and Botvinnik, was installed at the monument of Freedom. Such individuals should not be forgotten."
