”Goodbye Tomorrow” is inspired by a period in recent Turkish history that culminated in the execution of three students: Deniz Gezmis, Hüseyin Inan and Yusuf Arslan. As the world over, the student movement was at its most active in Turkey between 1968-72. But on the heels of a military takeover, Gezmis, Inan and Arslan are arrested and bought to trial. While the prosecution demands the death penalty, the defence counsel insist the three are innocent of any capital offence. Regardless, the death sentence is passed. Campaigns are organised across the country to reverse the military court’s verdict. Behind bars, the three know that nothing will change their fate. It just remains for them to say their goodbyes.
