Lovely, repressed, and quietly intelligent, French chambermaid Helene comes upon a couple engaged in an intensely sensual chess match, and discovers she has a knack for the game. This obsession, much to the chagrin of her husband and teenage daughter, leads her to seek the clandestine tutelage of a reclusive American doctor, a liaison that radically transforms both of their lackluster lives.
