Movie Info

In this drama, a woman tries to balance her personal responsibilities with her budding career as a musician. Anita (Anjela Lauren Smith) wants to make a career as a reggae singer. She has talent, drive, and a solid vocal group with her friends Sharon (Caroline Chikezie) and Yvette (Jocelyn Esien). But Anita also has two kids, and trying to raise her children while following her dreams and struggling to get out of the projects is no easy task. Byron (Wil Johnson), the father of her children, doesn't approve of her musical ambitions, and while mourning the death of her mother, Anita makes the shocking discovery that she wasn't really her mother: Rose (Suzette Llewellyn), the woman she grew up believing was her big sister, was her biological mother all along. Despite her personal crises, Anita refuses to give up on her desire to make it in music, and she meets an agent (Diane Bailey) who wants to help her achieve her goal. Babymother was the feature debut for writer/director Julian Henriques.
