Milla is a petite teenage girl with an angelic face and alert, bright green eyes. To fall in love with Moses, a charming yet crazy, drug-addicted youth, is the last thing Henry and Anna wanted for their cancer-stricken daughter. It is not as though the overly caring psychiatrist and moody pianist are perfect parents, but Moses crashes through the seemingly healthy family life like a hurricane. For Milla this exciting romance is the most beautiful thing she can imagine, and given her progressing illness, nothing is going to hold her back. A new space for comfort and trust opens up in a life filled with chaos, fear of loss, zest for love and drug problems. BABYTEETH is a refreshingly different tragicomedy carried by its unconventional characters.
