According to a synopsis of the movie, Anchor Babe is the story of a married illegal immigrant couple, Joyce (Omoni Oboli) and Paul Unanga (Sam Sarpong) who 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 ignore the deportation order, and go 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 “American Dream” 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. “Anchor Baby” is actually a derogatory term for children born by immigrants or other non-citizens in the United States. The movie, Anchor Baby, is set in the United States, but was shot in Brampton and Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Anchor Baby is written, directed and produced by a Nigerian first time director, Lonzo Nzekwe. The movie is being produced under his independent film company, Alpha Galore films, a division of Alpha Galore Inc. based in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Other co-producers on the project are Ian Sun and Jeremy Hood. For more information about the company, please visit www.alphagalorefilms.com or www.anchorbabymovie.com. The movie which will be in cinema before the end of the year in Nigeria, was shot in Canada with a red one camera.”
