Stop me if you love heard this one. Zaynab, a queer Muslim Pakistani woman, walks into a bar and meets Alma, a Mexican woman. Their repartee is charming and their connection immediate, but that's just the beginning.

Zaynab (Fawzi Mirza from the webseries Her Story) is stuck. She lives with her widowed TV-obsessed mother (Shabana Azmi) but takes great pains to hide everything from her, including her love of wrestling and her sexuality. Alma (Sari Sanchez), on the other hand, gives Zaynab's routine a much needed shakeup, and what starts as a casual affair begins to deepen. Zaynab's discomfort with her sexuality and her dysfunctional relationship with her mother, however, threaten to drive the young women apart.

More than your average romantic comedy, Signature Move is as much a celebration of diversity as a testament to female strength, where women are paramount as lovers, wrestlers, mothers and daughters.
