Forced to flee Bangladesh aged eight, chess prodigy Fahim Mohammad arrived in Paris with his father as illegal immigrants.

Fahim was tutored by one of France's top chess coaches, Xavier Parmentier, who gave him a sense of purpose, his struggles on the chessboard mirroring both his victories and his crushing defeats in his battle for a normal life. Rising through local and national tournaments to be crowned France's Under-12 Chess Champion in 2012, Fahim became a national sensation.

Told through the clear eyes of a child, Fahim's tale is both heartwarming and grimly eye-opening in equal measure.
