Alicia Keys’ new emotional track, “Back to Life,” has prominently featured in the new teaser for Disney’s Queen of Katwe.

Set in Kampala, Uganda, the film follows 10 year-old Phiona Mutesi and her family in the impoverished area of Katwe in Kampala. After meeting a missionary who teaches her to play chess, Phiona begins to succeed in local chess competitions. The missionary then teaches her to read and write in order to pursue schooling. She quickly advances through the ranks in tournaments, but breaks away from her family to focus on her own life. Her mother eventually realizes that Phiona has a chance to excel and teams up with Katende to help her fulfill her extraordinary potential, escape a life of poverty and save her family.
