As a Pakistani Muslim lesbian living in Chicago, Zaynab (played by Fawzia Mirza) is out and proud — to everyone except her newly-moved-in mother. When artfully dodging her mother’s attempts to find her a husband becomes too much, Zaynab copes by taking up Lucha-style wrestling. Her life climbs the turnbuckle when she meets Alma, a Latina bookstore owner, and the two fall head over heels into bed and relationship drama. With the spirit and spunk of ‘90’s New Queer Cinema, Signature Move revitalises the classic lesbian rom-com by crossing cultures and body slamming its way into your heart.
