Aban is strong, self-sufficient, and the only woman contractor in the combative orange fields of northern Iran. She beats out the male competition for a big job, a hard fought first win, but not without great risk to her livelihood as she put her house up as collateral. She's a tough boss and leans on her crew of seasonal female workers to get the job done. The operation quickly gets off to a rocky start as her rivals stop at nothing to obstruct and delay her deliveries at every turn. Defiant and determined, Aban won’t let go without a fight.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Arash Lahooti makes his feature fiction debut with Orange Days, which features a striking performance by Hedieh Tehrani who also played the lead role in the 2018 MSP Iranian Film Festival selection Israfil.
