Zaynab, a thirty-something Pakistani, Muslim, lesbian in Chicago takes care of her sweet and TV-obsessed mother. As Zaynab falls for Alma, a bold and very bright Mexican woman, she searches for her identity in life, love and wrestling.
“The real joy of this deliciously entertaining new movie is that they all have such a finite joie de vivre about them. Their ‘issues’ may be serious and all about finding out where they fit in today’s world, but they are nevertheless imbued with a sense of humor too that encourages us to hope that they will find a way to overcome their problems. And who knew fierce women pounding each other in a wrestling ring could be part of the solution?”- Queer Guru
