Endgame is a fictional story based on true events - how an impoverished high school in the border town of Brownsville, Texas, started a chess team and went on to become state champions. The touching family-friendly film also touches on the subjects of immigration, teen drinking, being true to one’s self, and bullying.
Rico Rodriguez plays Jose, who is struggling with living in the shadow of his popular soccer-star brother, who is favored at school as well as by their mother. He finds comfort in playing chess with his abuelita (Ivonne Coll), who has been teaching him to play like his grandfather, a champion in Mexico.
Now as part of the Brownsville school team, Jose has the chance to use his chess skills and, for once in his life, find himself in the spotlight, as he tries to help his team make it to the Texas state finals. As their coach, Mr. Alvarado, teaches his students the meaning of perseverance and team effort in the face of adversity, Jose discovers his own strengths and uses them to bring his broken family together.
