Chatroom, an inspiring story of hope and triumph set against the backdrop of an original TV Dance reality show, is set for release in cinemas across Nigeria.
Produced by Peju Fadirepo, directed by Chike Ibekwe and with Adesuwa Onyenokwe as Associate Producer, Chatroom will be released first quarter of 2020.
It is the story of a young girl who enters a TV reality show contest with nine other housemates as a means to escape the haunting ghost of her past and her present deprivation. However, an incident in the house forces her to go back to the past she had tried to forget and further reveal a disturbing secret that would throw the entire nation into shock.
“Ebiere is a young single mother,” the director, Ibekwe, said.
“Burdened by the weight of her past, current depravity and challenge of coping with a four-year old. She is almost a reflection of diamond in the rough. She is a young lady that has been subdued by life’s harsh incidents; one that attracts both empathy and stigmatism. Ebiere’s story and ultimate journey was developed to give a voice to so many who have been silenced by the stigma of abuse and possibly usher in a new life of openness and triumph rather than that of misery and defeatism.”
Chatroom parades stars like Odunlade Adekola, Omawunmi Megbele, Jephthah Bowotoaka Akpororo, RonyaMan, Sambasa Nzeribe, Tony Umez, Nengi Adoki, Vivian Anani, Ibrahim Suleiman, Ghanaian actor, Kobby Acheampong, Camerounian actor and dancer, Lea Dibebe and Damilare Kuku.
The movie is supported by the Bank of Industry and Sterling Bank.
