In the “Queen of Katwe”, Fiona is little. Economically, socially, and in pretty much every other way you might imagine. She becomes fascinated with the budding chess club in her shanty town of Katwe, Uganda. A young girl who seems even more little than her, tells her:
“In chess, the little one can become the big one.”
Fiona’s story is the stuff of inspiration and unearthed glory. This is one to gather the family for a viewing. From the first quote in my initial viewing of the trailer, I was hooked.
