King Me explores the surreal world of competitive checkers play as seen through the eyes of South African township resident, Lubabalo Kondlo. With the help of some sympathetic Americans and under the radar of oppressive forces in his homeland, Kondlo, traveled to the U.S. to compete in the U.S. National Championship of Checkers. A relative unknown in the legitimate checkers world, Kondlo crushed the competition and earned the right to challenge 20+ year reigning World Champ, Ron 'Suki' King for his title. King Me tells the story of a game that struggles for respect, the men and women who love it and how a seemingly meaningless game can change everything for one man who lives life on the fringes.
