A Ugandan girl sees her world rapidly change after being introduced to the game of chess. —IMDB
There was nothing much new in the story’s plot line. Disadvantaged kid that shows incredible skill at chess. Her chess club teacher arranges for her to play competition chess, which she does, and it changes her life. Apart from the story, what is interesting is the presentation of the culture and lifestyle of families in Uganda. The photography is beautiful even as the environment is polluted and people are living in incredible poverty. The spirit of the people as they struggle for survival is amazing. The cast does a great job. The cultural elements and the actors are what make this movie worth seeing.
