The Music Box Selects line will consist of blu-ray debuts of catalog titles and home video premieres, all of which will adhere to the quality and diversity that fans have come to expect from the Music Box name.

In Chicago, Zaynab (Fawzia Mirza) is a thirty-something American-Pakistani lawyer who lives with and cares for her recently widowed, TV-obsessed mother (legendary Indian actress Shabana Azmi). Alma (Sari Sanchez) is a free-spirited Mexican-American 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! Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best US Narrative Feature at Outfest and a worldwide festival darling following its SXSW premiere, critics and fans alike agree on the film called “a gem” by the Chicago Sun-Times.
