A former prostitute begins a new life by marrying her loved-one but the latter locks her up in their house. When she manages to break free, she is confronted with another kind of prison: the society who is not willing to forgive her past. Part of My Persian Nights, Abbas Rafei’s film portrays an Iranian woman who tries to overcome religious and traditional dogmatism in order to stay alive.

Abbas, an Iranian ambitious job-creator, has a successful business in eco-tourism with his family’s help. Now he wants to remarry to promote his business, but his wife is against him.

The Irvine International Film Festival (IIFF) celebrates the power of individual expression and diverse points of views. IIFF is dedicated to bringing to Orange County the finest films from around the world
