Pawn is the story of a life-changing friendship that develops between an inmate
and a corrections officer over a game of chess behind the bars of
Ypsilanti State Penitentiary in 1965.
During the game, each man struggles with the personal events and decisions
that has led him to his place in life.
Sacrifices are made and lives are lost as this game of strategy ends in regret,
remorse…and eventually in rehabilitation.
