The Inventor tells the story of four entangled lives: the Average Joe, the General, the Mistress, and the General's wife. Each unknowingly plays a role in the struggle of good against evil. They go about their lives, making decisions of their own free will while a larger chess match plays out in the background. Ultimately the choices they make-deciding to pursue an idea, selecting a book, choosing a repair shop, going for a walk, or even the split-second decision of fight or flight-impact the outcome. Do the good guys win? Perhaps, but are the good guys who you expect them to be?
"In chess one cannot control everything. Sometimes a game takes an unexpected turn in which beauty begins to emerge."
-Vladimir Kramnik, Russian chess grandmaster and undisputed World Chess Champion from 2006-2007
