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… In Iran’s society today, making a film about prostitutes is a real challenge because the society and government deny their very existence. Oblivion Season shows a woman behind bars and fences all over today’s Tehran, who 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.

Abbas Rafei born in 1962 in Shiraz Iran . He graduated in cinematography from the University of Television and later in dramatic literature. He established a film production company in 1995, when he produced his first movie "Mina’s Secret", and has developed its activities for making many TV series, fiction and documentary movies and cooperated with other movie-making companies all over the world. He has received a number of awards from festivals all around the world.
