Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “‘Queen of Katwe’ centers on a young girl (Nalwanga) selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda, whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion.”

based on the inspirational true story book by Tim Crothers
