A Ugandan girl sees her world rapidly change after being introduced to the game of chess. Based on the true story of Phiona Mutesi, a smart, courageous kid from the grindingly poor shanty town of Katwe, in the Ugandan capital Kampala, who became a national chess champion in the face of poverty and personal heartbreak. ‘A film that pulses with colour, vitality and the locals’ natural ebullience, without glossing over grim realities’.
