Julia, a bright university student, is preparing for a life abroad when an unexpected romance sparks between her and English, a damaged soldier returning from the war zone in eastern Ukraine. From metropolitan Kyiv to a remote Carpathian village, Julia and English must decide if they are ready to build a future together in a homeland that is slowly being torn apart.
Director Roxy Toporowych about Julia Blue, ‘It is my love letter to Ukraine, a witness to my time abroad and to the youth growing up and claiming their identity in a country at war.’
