Sweden may be the host of the Nobel prize, but it is also home to another variety of the mentally-gifted: Grand Masters of Memory. Mattias became a countrywide sensation as a three-time Swedish national champion in the oddly fascinating mind sport of memory: memorizing superhuman amounts of information under time constraints. However, his dominance is threatened when two confident newcomers emerge onto the scene armed with their own idiosyncratic methods of training.
