A Love War Story

They say you are leaving / Yes

Do you even know what love is? / No but I know what it is not

Ume has fallen in love, again. This time, with a woman. In Japan. And what about her family in The States? Who is the woman she has become and who is the woman she thought she would be? Taking place on the eve of World War Two in both The United States and Japan, A Departure follows Ume as she negotiates her duties as daughter, mother, and lover as she decides between loyalty or love in the great war of her heart.
