Synopsis

In Vienna, during 1770, Baron von Kempelen unveiled an unbeatable chess-playing machine, The Mechanical Turk. Hailed as a great invention, it was actually an illusion, operated from inside by an Italian dwarf, Tibor. When a beautiful Contessa died, the machine and its inventor became the target of persecution and intrigue.
