Oblivion season

An ex-prostitute starts a new life by marrying her loved one but leaving the shadow of her dark past is not as easy as it seemed before. Now she is the prisoner of her loved one and to earn her freedom she should fight with the masculine society...


Director View :
In Iran's today society making a film about prostitutes is a real challenge cause the society and government deny their very existence. Now it's much more difficult that your protagonist be an ex-prostitute.
I tried to show a woman behind bars and fences all over today's Tehran, whom is trying to overcome all the intolerance and traditional and religious dogmatism in her society, to live and stay alive. A society which doesn't wish to let her forget the past.
