Azerbejdžanac Seymour Tahirbekov međunarodni je šahovski majstor. Nakon pobjede na kvalifikacionom turniru, Seymour osvaja pravo da izazove aktuelnog svjetskog šampiona u šahu Skrotena Gudmunsona. Nekoliko sedmica uoči meča za titulu svjetskog prvaka, Seymour, usljed velikog pritiska da na bilo koji način izvojuje pobjedu, upada u teško psihičko i emotivno stanje. Vijest o smrti njegovog djeda kap je koja prelijeva čašu, i Seymour se daje u bijeg. Predviđajući da bi njegovo odsustvo moglo izazvati međunarodni skandal, njegov otac Khanlar se obraća Državnoj službi bezbjednosti za pomoć u njegovom pronalasku. U međuvremenu, Seymour odlazi na ostrvo Kür Dili o kojem mu je nekoć pričao djed. Na ostrvu, koje prvenstveno nastanjuju divlji konji i krave, susreće jedinog ljudskog stanovnika – jednog starca. Seymour i starac na početku su sumnjičavi i hladni jedan prema drugom, ali s vremenom se odnos dvojice usamljenika otopljava i oni se neočekivano zbližavaju. Seymour preuzima kontrolu nad svojim životom, ali vrijeme nastavlja teći, a šahovski meč za titulu svjetskog šampiona sve se više približava, kao i predstavnici Državne službe bezbjednosti.

Seymour Tahirbekov is an international chess grandmaster from Azerbaijan. Having won the Candidates Tournament, Seymour earns the right to challenge the defending world champion Skroten Gudmonson in the World Chess Championship match. With a few weeks left before the championship match, Seymour’s psychological and emotional state deteriorates under escalating abuse and pressure to succeed by any means. News of his grandfather’s death is the straw that breaks the camel’s back, and Seymour runs away. Anticipating an international scandal, his father Khanlar turns to the National Security Department for help in finding his son. In the meantime, Seymour arrives on an island of Kür Dili that his grandfather had once told him about. On the island, inhabited mostly by feral horses and cows, he encounters its only human resident – an old man. Distant and skeptical of each other at first, the two loners gradually warm up to each other forming an unlikely bonding. Seymour takes control of his freedom, however time keeps running out: the World Chess Championship match is just around the corner, as is the National Security Department…
