              2. Theme
                1. Leaving home and becoming independent are things which most people face sooner or later. They can be alarming, but they are natural and almost inevitable. Sometimes this kind of story is described in the phrase “rites of passage” - which fits narratives about growing up, moving on and life-changes.
