Orange Days, the feature film debut from documentary director Arash Lahooti stars Hadieh Tehrani as Aban, a stubborn farm contractor who decides to compete, against unfair odds, with established competitors in harvesting fields of oranges in northern Iran. 

Going so far as to put up her house as collateral, Aban's pursuit of her goal faces multiple challenges: a husband frustrated by Aban's disregard for their relationship and assets, a rebelling crew of underpaid, all-female workers, and the sabotaging efforts of her competitors in a male-dominated world. Orange Days is a tense drama brought to life by remarkable performances from a cast led by Hedieh Tehrani's bold work.
