In wrestling, the right signature move can take years to develop. And thirty-something Zaynab--a closeted, Muslim lawyer who takes up wrestling--quickly learns that she lacks the right technique and experience--on and off the mat. Working in the heart of Chicago's Pakistani community, Zaynab wears the mask of an obedient daughter to her endearing but conservative mother, all the while hiding that she's a lesbian. As the pressure of keeping her sexuality a secret starts to wear on her, Zaynab meets Alma, a free-spirited Chicana--a woman who is more experienced in love and used to living her life out loud and unashamed. As their relationship progresses and they are confronted with their differences, these polar opposites are challenged to find cultural middle ground before realizing that there's no one right way to live your own truth. Signature Move is an honest and funny look at howmodern romance can arise from a path steeped in tradition.
