In the late 1940s, Prince Seretse Khama of Bechuanaland is studying law in Britain. There, the prince falls in love with a white British clerk, Ruth Williams, and they plan to marry. Nothing prepares them for the diplomatic firestorm and domestic political tumult their love would spark. The international opposition is more unyielding from the British holding their land as a protectorate and fearful of South Africa's racist backlash to this affront to their apartheid domination. Against all odds, King Khama and Ruth must struggle to maintain their love and help their people in a land that would become the Republic of Botswana.
