The world of chess is in the hands of four women: Nona Gaprindaschwili, Maia Tschiburdanidze, Nana Alexandria, and Nana Iosseliani dominate international happenings on the board for three decades, win title after title, mutually outdo one another. But what does it mean to be an elite athlete during the Cold War? More precisely, in Georgia, which produced all of the players and still takes care of their memorial today? Tatia Skhirtladze wants to know and asks the icons and their fans.
