What might have been a disaster for the Finlay family leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life. When seriously ill teenager Milla (Eliza Scanlon – Little Women) falls madly in love with a smalltime drug dealer, Moses (Toby Wallace – Romper Stomper), it’s her protective parents’ (Ben Mendelsohn – Captain Marvel / Essie Davis – The Babadook) worst nightmare. Things get messy and morals go out the window as the lives of those around the family: a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, a disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour become intertwined and Milla shows those in her orbit how to live like you have nothing to lose.
In a story about life, grief and the chaos of family, Babyteeth joyously explores how far we will go for love and how good it is to be alive.
"Babyteeth is like a rush of blood to the head, a violent, passionate lurch into young adulthood."

"It's quirky, with a whip-smart script, and pulled off the double-whammy of making me, and everyone around me, laugh and then cry."
