The Days uses flashbacks to show how a relationship has come to an end. The two artists, Dong and Chung have become strangers to each other and over the course of the years even their creative élan has disappeared. Their hollow relationship leads to an oppressive resignation, to boundless exhaustion and fatigue. They vegetate, let the days pass by without making anything of them. Dong numbs himself with alcohol and cigarettes, Chung sits mutely on the bed and can not really understand her misfortune. The two decide to take a vacation in the countryside and visit Dong's father in the northeast. But the journey back to childhood ends in disappointment.
