Biography[edit | edit source]
She wasn't seen until she comes home after camping with her friends and discovers her mother has invited Edward Scissorhands, a being with scissors for hands who was created by a scientist to live with them.
Although when Edward first sees Kim, he falls for her beauty right away, Kim is, at first, afraid of Edward and wants nothing to do with him.
So, she decides to spend time with her boyfriend Jim, which causes Edward to be jealous.
Later, Edward goes on to be famous with his unusual hands by becoming a good hair stylist. He goes on talk shows and has many interviews.
One day, while watching him on TV with her younger brother and Jim, Kim begins to see Edward for what he really is: a gentle creation who wants to be accepted by people and be their friend.
Later, Kim begins to fall in love with Edward and stands up for him when Jim mocks his hands. One night, Jim tricks Edward into robbing a house and drives away while the police come, despite Kim begging for them to go back.
Due to this incident, Edward begins to lose his good reputation and begins to be feared. Then, Kim becomes so angry at Jim for not turning back that she breaks up with him.
While Kim's family is setting up for Christmas, Edward carves an ice sculpture, whose shavings create snow which Kim dances under.
Later, Jim sees this and realizes that Kim has feelings for Edward. He becomes full of anger and jealousy, believing that is why Kim broke up with him and plans revenge on Edward.
He calls for Edward which makes him accidentally scratch Kim. Then, Jim tells the townspeople that Edward did this on purpose and he's dangerous.
Later when Edward saves Kim's brother from getting hit by a van, the townspeople believe Edward was attacking him.
Jim took this as an opportunity to make Edward look even worse and tries to fight him, Edward then accidentally cuts Jim which causes the people to form an angry mob against Edward.
Then, Edward runs to the mansion where he was created. Later, Kim follows him.
Then, they confess their love for each other, only to be interupted by Jim who has a gun and attempts to shoot Edward, Kim tells Jim to stop who proceeds to hit her.
Then, Edward stabs Jim and throws him out the mansion to his death. Then, Kim and Edward kiss goodbye and Kim lies to the angry townspeople, telling them that Edward is dead as he and Jim killed each other off.
The townspeople leave, saddened by Jim's death, but happy, thinking Edward is dead. Only Kim knows the truth.
An elderly woman, who is telling this story to her granddaughter, reveals that she was Kim.
Then, she reveals that she hasn't visited him since she's a old woman and wants him to remember how she was in her youth. She also believes Edward is still alive and he's the reason that it still snows. She also admits that she still occasionally dances in it, and smiles.
