Synopsis of Turup

Chess is a popular pastime in the neighbourhood, with roadside games bringing together men, to challenge each other in friendly and sometimes unfriendly matches. But for some the pawns include morality and religion, causing tensions to erupt when a tournament gets underway. Against this backdrop, a domestic worker with a secret hobby, a former journalist struggling with married life, and a young woman in love find themselves pushing boundaries and challenging the rules of the game.
