In the fictional town of Absalom, a surreal chess match is played between two demonic railroad barons for very high stakes. Their strange game moves through a series of poignant and unique vignettes– the Dance of the Pawns, the Dance of the Knights, the Dance of the Bishops, etc.– in which the unfortunate chess pieces find themselves being made to do battle inside a prison they do not fully understand. As the game progresses, the chess pieces begin to become aware of their bleak situation…and attempt to lead a rebellion against the game itself.
