Plot Summary:

"Computer Chess" transports us to a weekend tournament of early computer chess software programmers at a shabby hotel circa 1980. With clunky computers the size of small cars, and eyewear of almost equal weight, these vintage geeks may be in the techno-vanguard – vying to create the perfect computer model to beat man at his own game – but they are hopeless when it comes to human relations. Sharing the hotel is an "est"-style encounter group conducting a touch-feely therapy workshop, compounding the awkwardness but strangely in sync with the programmers' own youthful explorations.
