What is "The Queen's Gambit" about?

The Queen's Gambit is a fictional story that follows the life of an orphan chess prodigy, Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy), during her quest to become the world's greatest chess player while struggling with emotional problems and drug and alcohol dependency. The Queen's Gambit is a chess opening. The story begins in the mid-1950s and proceeds into the 1960s.
The story begins in Lexington, Kentucky, where a nine-year-old Beth, having lost her mother in a car crash, is taken to an orphanage where she meets Jolene (Moses Ingram), a vibrant and friendly girl a few years older than her; Helen Deardorff (Christiane Seidel), the woman running the orphanage; and Mr. Shaibel (Bill Camp), the custodian of the orphanage, who teaches Beth to play chess. As was common during the 1950s, the orphanage dispenses daily tranquilizer pills to the girls, which turns into an addiction for Beth. A few years later, Beth is adopted by Alma Wheatley (Marielle Heller) and her husband from Lexington. After being adopted and adjusting to her new home, Beth enters a chess tournament; even though she has no prior competition experience she wins. She develops friendships with several people: former Kentucky state champion Harry Beltik; arrogant, popular, and intelligent chess prodigy Benny Watts; and journalist, photographer, and avid chess player D.L. Townes (Jacob Fortune-Lloyd). As Beth continues to win games and reaps the financial benefits of her success, she becomes more dependent on drugs and alcohol.
Ultimately she defeats the Russian (Andruscha Hilscher) world champion in Moscow in a game which begins with the Queen's Gambit opening.
