Synopsis: Two demons meet by chance in a lesser part of Hell and a challenge to a game of Chess becomes a battle of power and egos on Earth as each demon pits the souls of people under his control against those of his opponent in real life situations.

The question is how much free will each of the Chess Pieces actually possess.
