SYNOPSIS

Leading us to Tbilisi, Georgia, Glory to the Queen reveals the interwoven biographies of the world chess heroes Nona Gaprindashvili, Nana Alexandria, Maia Chiburdanidze and Nana Ioseliani. It offers rare insight into their present lives while at the same time exploring their lasting legacy. Today they are aging women, ordinary and extreme, pedantic and free. The city, indeed the whole country, are still marked by them – even if these marks are slowly fading. Although they played together as the Soviet Union’s Olympic team, they were also tough opponents and had not sat together at the same table for over 25 years.

GLORY TO THE QUEEN brings them together again in an encounter where memories emerge, the common history is recalled, and many differences come to light.
