Goodbye Julia tells the story of two women who represent the complicated relationship and differences between northern and southern Sudanese communities. Set in Khartoum during the last years of Sudan as a united country.

Mona, an upper-middle-class former popular singer from North, who lives with her husband Akram, seeks to attenuate her feelings of guilt for causing the death of a Southern man by employing Julia, his unsuspecting widow, as her maid.
