When their mother leaves them in order to find their estranged father, seven year-old Jin and her younger sister, Bin, are left to live with their Aunt for the summer. With only a small piggy bank and their mother's promise to return when it is full, the two young girls must acclimate to changes in their family life. Counting the days, and the coins, the two bright-eyed young girls eagerly anticipate their mother's homecoming. But when the bank fills up, and their mother is still missing, the Aunt decides she can no longer tend to the children. Taken to live on their grandparents' farm, it is here that Jin comes to learn the importance of family bonds in this beautiful, meditative, and thought-provoking second feature from So Yong Kim, the acclaimed director of IN BETWEEN DAYS.
