Brace yourself for mother-daughter relationships and lucha libre women’s wrestling in this multicultural lesbian love story.

Zaynab (Fawzia Mirza), a Pakistani-American immigration lawyer, gets swept up in a tequila-fuelled one-night stand with Alma (Sari Sanchez), a passionate Mexican-American bookstoreowner. Zayneb escapes an awkward morning-after but finds herself reluctantly chasing after Alma in hopes of retrieving something she left behind. Zaynab is forced to face the predicament of revealing her secrets and challenging her well-intentioned mother’s conservative expectations in order to pursue a relationship with the out and proud Alma.

Embark on a delightful journey of self-acceptance and exploration in this light-hearted, female dominated romantic comedy from writer and star, Fawzia Mirza, and also starring Shabana Azmi, star of 1996’s Fire, Bollywood’s first Lesbian feature.
