5150 ELM'S WAY is at the end of a quiet street in a small Canadian town. When student filmmaker Yannick Bérubé falls off his bike nearby, he knocks at the door of the Beaulieu residence, hoping to clean the blood off his hands. But Jacques Beaulieu and his family have other plans for Yannick. Beaulieu is a righteous psychopath and fanatic chess player who wants to rid the world of evil. And even though Yannick has done nothing wrong, he is beaten, tortured and tormented before Beaulieu makes him an offer: win a single chess game and he is free to go. And so Yannick is now a pawn in Beaulieu's game. A game in which he will either lose his mind or his life.
