Her mentor, Robert Katende, who introduces her to the game was himself a soccer coach oneself before becoming a missionary.  The movie revolves around the life and struggles of Phiona before she goes on to becoming the international chess champion. The movie is scheduled to be released on October 7, 2016 in India.
