In the movie Signature Move, in Chicago, Zaynab (Fawzia Mirza) is a thirty-something Pakistani lawyer living in the USA who lives with and cares for her recently widowed, TV-obsessed mother (veteran Indian actress Shabana Azmi). Alma (Sari Sanchez) is a free-spirited Mexican bookshop owner.
After meeting in a bar, the two quickly fall into bed with each other and embark on a romance, but problems aren’t far behind. Zaynab’s traditional mother still expects her daughter to marry a man, while Alma finds herself reluctant to get involved with the closeted Zaynab, leaving them at odds despite their strong attraction for each other. And then there’s Zaynab’s latest interest: training in Lucha-style wrestling with a former pro grappler!
