Like her directorial debut Twelve Nights, Twelve Days illustrates twelve scenes of a tumultuous marriage, from its happy beginning to its harsh end. On the first day, Jeannie and Simon seem to form the perfect marriage, but the next eleven vignettes uncover the various conflicts, both large and small, that gradually wear down their emotional bond. Love can build a marriage, but Twelve Days proves that reality can break it just as easily.
