Whilst shifts in the physical realm are so defined and apparent, transitions in one's mental states are subtle, yet it governs our outlook and ultimately, the way we approach fleeting moments of solitude in our lives.

In the ever-increasing urban environment, many people experience difficulty in attaining comfort when left to their own devices. 'Departure' presents the psychological journey individuals embark on as they seek to face uncertainties with composure. The way one's ego manifests itself in isolation is explored through the varying degrees of ease shown in their facial expressions and gestures during moments of mundanity and seemingly, stagnancy.
