Most of the students at Intermediate School 318 in Brooklyn, New York live in poverty—but that hasn't stopped them from cultivating the most successful and formidable junior high school chess team in the country. Brooklyn Castle follows five of I.S. 318's chess players as they deal with both personal and educational challenges (like budget cuts that threaten nearly all of the school's extracurricular activities). For these kids, chess mirrors life: When you're down, it can take just one move to put you back on top. Watch the trailer. Days, times vary.
