Solitude adopts an experimental approach to delve deep into the concept of isolation and emptiness. The film uses overbearing visuals and sounds to represent the state of mind of its protagonist. Amongst the vast and overpowering nature, he appears minuscule, trivial even, allowing the scene to resonate with the solitude he experiences.

Far in the barren lands where silence prevails and heavy winds blow, the protagonist sits and contemplates on his newly painted, steel chair. Metaphors are employed within this plane of abstraction to present forth an engagement with the ideas of loneliness. Additionally, due to the title of the film, the premise is taken a step further and is tied with the romanticizing of loneliness as solitude. However, where does one end and the other begin? Is one desirable while the other meant only for rejection? The narrative invokes all of these questions for the viewer to ponder upon.
