The film tells the story of Ugandan chess wunderkind Phiona Mutesi, whose rise to prominence in the international chess circuit was documented in a 2011 ESPN magazine article by Tim Crothers. Crothers subsequently expanded the article into a biography (on which the film’s script is based) titled The Queen Of Katwe: A Story Of Life, Chess, And One Extraordinary Girl’s Dream Of Becoming A Grandmaster . Nyong’o plays Phiona’s mother, Harriet Mutesi.

Ensuring that only the freshest ingredients go into their dishes, they are innovative and creative with their craft and consistently produce mouth-watering dishes for the guests staying at the lodge. One of the guests’ favourite main dishes is the freshly-caught pan-seared tilapia fillets steamed in white wine and served with locally grown carrots, French beans and roast potatoes. The lemon posset garnished with caramelized citrus zest, served with handmade shortbread is a big time favourite on the dessert menu.
