Based on a true story, Drama, Period and Historical
This film tells the remarkable true story of Seretse Khama, King of Bechuanaland (now modern Botswana), who caused an international outcry in the 1940s by marrying Ruth Williams, a white office worker from London. United by their love, Seretse and Ruth triumphed over every obstacle placed in front of them – from their differing backgrounds and families to the disapproving British and South African governments – to be together. In doing so, they helped transform the poorest country in Africa into one of its most peaceful and prosperous. Highlighting a painful period in British history, the film explores issues around tolerance, cultural diversity and unity with a powerful contemporary relevance, ultimately proving that love can triumph over forces of oppression.
