Based on the true story of the first black woman to win the Miss World competition, the dramedy will be set against the backdrop of the 1970 Miss World competition in London, hosted by Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was at the height of its powers, watched by more than 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women's Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast. When the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favorite but Miss Grenada — the first black woman to be crowned Miss World.
