The Film Story
King Khama, a charismatic African ruler, is furious.
The British Government have broken their agreement and are giving control of his country, The Bechuanaland Protectorate, to Cecil Rhodes, a ruthless gold and diamond tycoon. Rhodes plans to merge Bechuanaland with Rhodesia and place Khama & his people under the shackles of colonial rule.
Khama rushes to England accompanied by two eccentric kings and a cheeky white schoolboy who insists he's African, and hates the English. The three kings make a whirlwind tour of Britain trying to gather enough support to save their country "for our children and our children's children"!
Support floods in from all over the land. But then?
Khama realises all will be lost unless he can discover Rhodes' secret plan: to use Bechuanaland as a platform, invade The Transvaal, attack Johannesburg, and grab all it's gold. Khama discovers the plot & threatens exposure to the press. The British Government surrenders.
Khama goes to Windsor Castle and charms Queen Victoria who endorses Khama's victory with a brand new Protectorate agreement, thus laying the foundations for the most successful country in Africa: Botswana.
