YesAsia Editorial Description
Recently moving to North America with her single mother, Korean teenager Aimie (Jiseon Kim) doesn't quite fit in anywhere. She hasn't assimilated to school and life in her new country yet, and fights often with her mother who's thinking of remarrying. She trudges through the snow and banality with her only friend Tran (Taegu Andy Kim) whom she secretly likes. Aimie is afraid of losing him to another girl, but her inability to honestly voice her feelings only throws the ambiguous relationship and her life into further limbo and loneliness.

'미국'이라는 낯선 공간에서 외롭게 성장하는 한국계 사춘기소녀 이야기.
화성 같은 미국의 이민지옥에 살고 있는 10대 소녀 '에이미'는 엄마와 단둘이 미국으로 건너와 학원을 다니며 영어를 배우고 있다. 낯선 이곳에서 '에이미'와 살아가기 위해 엄마는 항상 밤늦도록 일을 하고, 게다가 재혼까지 결심하는데... '에이미'는 그런 엄마가 마음에 들 리 없다.
'영어'도 힘들고, '사랑'도 힘들다!
기댈 곳 하나 없는 그녀의 유일한 친구는, 마찬가지로 미국에 온지 얼마 안 된 '트란'뿐. 분명 우정으로 시작한 만남이지만, 시간이 흐를수록 '에이미'는 '트란'에게서 친구 이상의 묘한 감정을 느끼게 된다. 어느날, '트란'은 '에이미'에게 아무 감정 없이 쿠키를 선물로 건네지만 '에이미'는 그 선물을 사랑의 시작이라고 착각한다. 친절하지만 속 마음을 알수 없는 '트란'은 '에이미'를 더욱 불안하게 만들고, 결국 영어수강료를 환불 받은 돈으로 비싼 은팔찌를 '트란'에게 사주는 모험을 택한다. 그리고 그의 남자친구가 되길 간절히 소망한다. 짝사랑의 아픔. 서로를 향한 오해 섞인 사랑. 그 와중에 낯선 나라의 요구에 자신들이 짓눌려 가는듯한 불안을 느끼는 그들. 환경과 문화가 다른 타국에서의 이민생활은 결코 만만한 것이 아니다. 낯선 곳에서 처음 사랑을 느낀 남자에게 받은 상처, 그리고 엄마, 가족..그 어디서도 완전한 관계를 맺지 못한 에이미는 '고향'과 '아버지'에 대한 그리움으로 한국에 홀로 남은 아버지에게 긴 편지를 쓰기 시작한다.

February 8, 2010
Aimie (Ji-seon Kim) lives a lonely life in North America, where she immigrates with her single mother. She muses daily thoughts of her new alien life to her absentee father; the diverse people she meets, her difficult school life and her wish to see her father again. Aimie’s absence of a father figure brings a need to substitute that love in her life. A void is partly filled though when she meets Tran (Tae-gu Andy Kang) a young Korean teenager who also likes Aimie. Aimie becomes smitten and tattoos Tran’s back shoulder, begins to date him and finds herself in the cliché teen girl/boy relationship, at least in part. This is the crux - a puppy love romance of the highs and lows of teen romance, paralleling Aimie’s reflections to her missing father and her uncertain shifted new life.
Quite a moody romance - Aimie is bored, doodles in her exercise books, finding the isolation of her icy snow NA surroundings quite foreign to the place she should be in. But when Aimie meets Tran her life takes on some colourful contrasts. They both guardedly get to know each other, Aimee giving subtle presents to Tran like her chain key ring and going to party dates, and shyly indulging themselves. (Interesting part when Tran gels up Aimee’s hair for a party date and how she looks). Frictions happen; Tran touches Aimee’s breast as she sleeps, but their romance remains platonic, none effected - probably due to Aimee’s quite subdued nature and Tran’s young hormones getting the better of him. Tran finds an alternative attraction in two NA females he parties with, Aimee also gaining the attention of a male Korean. Tran also as a penchant to stealing from cars, taking fancy cigarette lighters and radios, at one point causing concern for Aimee when she sees the car owner’s loving photographs and reflects on their affectionate ‘away from home’ letter. But although a fragile relationship, Aimee becomes needful and affectionate to Tran, constantly ringing his mobile phone to keep contact, paralleling ‘contacts’ she makes to her ‘invisible’ father in thoughts of her lonely life. “In Between Days” signifies struggling love and need in between days of young romance (maybe love exists somewhere in between days) and alienation. Aimee is absent of the normal, by her foreign life style (away from Home) lacks a father to fulfil her happiness. Aimee clings for a moment to the stolen car photograph and letter of home, yearning for that contact from her gone away father.
