Induced Labor follows the engaging story of an Egyptian married couple who have desperately been seeking to make their dream of getting a visa to the U.S.come true. They dream of a better tomorrow for themselves and most importantly, their unborn kids.
Leaving no stone unturned and still getting their application for a visa rejected by the U.S. embassy, the couple, who are expecting a baby any minute now, come up with a hilariously wicked idea to storm into the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and give birth under its premises so that their kids acquire the U.S.
citizenship.Seems like the perfect scheme….too bad things didn’t go as planned!
