Phiona Mutesi -- a 17-year-old chess player from Uganda who holds the title of Woman Candidate Master -- is taking the world by storm, and she's even caught the attention of Bill Gates—so much so that the mogul himself has challenged her to a game.

Mutesi first tried her hand at chess when she stayed at a Ugandan missionary in 2005. The short documentary, "The Queen of Katwe," shows the teen in her home of the slums of Kampala, Uganda and describes her journey from being homeless to becoming a global phenomenon, after earning the title of Woman Candidate Master at just 16 years old.
