The movie is based on true events. The king of Botswana (Seretse Khama) met with a London office worker Ruth Williams. They were an immaculate match, yet their proposed marriage was tested by their families as well as by the British and South African governments. The last had as of late presented the strategy of politically-sanctioned racial segregation and considered the idea of a biracial couple managing a neighboring nation terrible. South Africa undermined the British: either foil the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the danger of South Africa attacking Botswana.
