Johan is an ordinary Dane with both feet firmly planted on the Danish welfare ground. Or at least he was, until he was fired. His twin sister Liv is a lawyer. She tries the best she can to help Johan navigate his way through the system. But when Johan meets Sofi all logic goes out the window. He discovers love, compassion and social responsibility. He wants to find his own way through life for him and Sofi. But there is no way around the system, either it you swallow the system or it swallows you.
Check mate is a story about what happens to the people who falls through the welfare system. The ones who land on the bottom of the system, the people who’s lives are taken over by the social authorities. The people for whom the worst things happen during the day. Between the hours 9 am and 3 pm.
