'Would she even look at you if you were not a King?'
This film is based on the true story written by Susan Williams in 2006. The first film based on this story was made in 1990 called 'A Marriage of Inconvenience', written by Michael Dutfield with perhaps a more accurate title. Both are based on a true story which today would not even be commented on.
On the surface, this is a romantic love story between the marriage of a black King and a white English girl. The story begins in 1947. It is about the outrage at a mixed marriage and an outdated colonial system imposed by sneering British officials who try to bully both parties not to marry.
'No man is free, who isn't master of himself' is King Khama's moto, which spurs him onto his final goal.
