What is Tetris on Apple TV+ about?
The biographical drama film is based on true events centered around the real-life Henk Rogers and Alexey Pajitnov. It’s all just about a video game, right? There’s no risk to life with it. Actually, wrong!
The story introduces us to Henk, who risks his life to outsmart the KGB, per the synopsis. That’s because he wants to introduce Tetris to the world and make it popular. In 1988, the American video game salesman discovers the game, and goes all the way to Russia to get help from inventor Alexey to do so. But doing so may not be as easy as he’d hoped, as the trailer shows. That’s because the Soviet Union owns the rights to it. Check out the video below:
