SYNOPSIS

The movie is about Okoro, a simple gateman who was going through the trials of the lowest class of working class families in Nigeria. He was indebted to his landlord to the extent where he was dehumanized, lost the right to his privacy and could no longer enjoy the quietness of his home. Battling with sleepless nights, an opportunity, out of the blues presented for him to travel to America, courtesy of a green card lottery entered for him by his long-term master’s nephew. 

America, the land of the free and home of the brave beckons… but alas it is Donald Trump’s America with some strong-faced, nonsense Immigration officers, ready with their batons to defend the gateway to their great land by ‘any means necessary’! 


The comedy and fiasco that ensures between Okoro and these immigration officers, and whether he succeeds in getting through immigration is better seen than told. ‘Gone to America’ is a humorous take on naïve immigrants whose dreams are set on arriving to America in search of greener pastures, but have to contend with Post-Trump policies.

The movie is set to screen in cinemas nationwide from 10th November 2017. It is being marketed and distributed by Silverbird Distribution Limited.

Why is it usually so difficult to for Nigerian producers to hire "white actors?"
Those immigration officers I see up there are usually typically a mixture of both races and it is awkward presenting them as exclusively African Americans.
