Jennifer Reeder; 2017; USA; 80 min

Zaynab, a thirty-something Pakistani Muslim lesbian in Chicago, takes care of her sweet,  conservative, and TV-obsessed mother, whose goal is to find Zaynab a husband. As Zaynab falls for Alma, a bold and very bright Mexican-American woman whom she meets at a bar, she searches for her identity in life, love, and...professional wrestling. Director Jennifer Reeder’s latest dramatic feature takes us through the journey of two women falling in love, despite the road-blocks along the way:  overcoming cultural differences, navigating complex family ties, bucking traditional roles and expectations, and learning to love oneself.
