Oblivion Verses

A beautiful poetic story set in modern Iran. A 70-year-old Morgue-man’s life is disrupted when the local militias start to hide the corpses of young people who were killed during the demonstration prior to the 2009 election in Iran. When he discovers the corpse of a young girl shot dead, he learns to resist the violence and finally overcomes his fears and struggles of forgetting his past. He will bring together all the energies to give a decent burial to the young woman before the return of the militia.
