A FILM BY: Jennifer Reeder
WRITTEN BY: Lisa Donato, Fawzia Mirza
STARRING: Fawzia Mirza, Shabana Azmi, Sari Sanchez

The debut feature from Newcity's Chicago Film Project, set in Chicago with a Chicago-based cast and crew.

In this hilarious and heartfelt look at modern families and the complexities of love in its many forms, Zaynab (Fawzia Mirza) is a thirty-something Pakistani, Muslim, lesbian lawyer living in Chicago who begins a new romance with Alma (Sari Sanchez), a confident Mexican-American woman. Zaynab's recently widowed mother Parveen (Shabana Azmi) has moved in and spends her days watching Pakistani TV dramas while searching for a potential husband for her only daughter. Alma's mother, Rosa (Charin Alvarez), is a former professional Luchadora which Zaynab finds fascinating as she has recently taken up lucha-style wrestling training with a former pro wrestler, Jayde. Zaynab tries to keep both her love life and her wrestling a secret from her Muslim mother, who knows more than she lets on.
