Anchor Baby, a movie shot by Lonzo Nzekwe And featuring City People actress of the year, Omoni Oboli, Sam Sarpong of Hollywood and other foreign cast is set to hit cinemas in Nigeria.
According to synopsis of the movie, Anchor Babe is the story of married illegal immigrant couple, Joyce (Omoni Oboli) and Paul Unanga (Sam Sarpong) have been ordered by the US immigration to leave the country by voluntary departure. They agree to leave; but only after Joyce who is 5 months pregnant delivers her baby inside the US. This will guarantee automatic citizenship for their child. The couple ignores the deportation order, and goes into hiding. Later, Paul is caught and deported by a team of overzealous Immigration officers, led by agent Mark Castello (Michael Scratch). This leaves Joyce to struggle on her own to accomplish their dream.
Then, Joyce meets Susan Backley (Terri Oliver), a married freelance writer who offers to help her with free accommodation until her baby is born. Joyce accepts the offer and moves in. Now, with the help of Susan, Joyce sets out on the most daring journey of her life; to achieve the â€œAmerican Dreamâ€ for her unborn child. She will try by any means necessary.
The theme of the movie is about the Love, dreams, desperation, betrayal and struggles, faced by these non-citizens in order to belong to the American society. â€œAnchor Babyâ€ is actually a derogatory term for children born by immigrants or other non-citizens in the United States.
