Set in the slums of Katwe in Kampala, the biographical sports drama chronicles the remarkable rags-to-riches story of Phiona Mutesi (played by Madina Nalwanga), who became one of the first female chess champions in Ugandan sports history, despite the odds. Her meteoric rise to glory from the slums, the family’s constant struggle with poverty and her coach’s unflinching belief in the chess prodigy, forms the story.
