In a hilarious and heartfelt look at modern love and families, thirty-something Pakistani lesbian lawyer Zaynab (Fawzia Mirza) begins a romance with vivacious Mexican-American woman Alma (Sari Sanchez). While Zaynab’s mother spends her days searching for a potential husband for her daughter, while Alma’s mother, a former professional Luchadora, fascinates Zaynab, who has recently taken up lucha-style wrestling training. Zaynab struggles to keep both her love life and her wrestling a secret from her mother, who knows more than she lets on.
