Phiona is an impoverished girl living in the slum of Katwe in Uganda. She thinks she’ll never escape – until her gift for chess turns her into the ‘Queen Of Katwe’.
A chance encounter with Robert Katende, a teacher who’s trying to introduce chess to the local children, offers her the possibility to change her life. Thanks to her natural talent and dedication to getting better at the game, she might just be able to get her family out of the slums.
‘Queen Of Katwe’ is an inspiring true story starring David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong’o and newcomer Madina Nalwanga, making her debut as Phiona.
