| Stark and honest about the dysfunction rampant in the contemporary Australian family and society at large
Saddled with cancer and surrounded by pretentious, unhappy people posing as family and friends, a teenage Australian girl tries to find some happiness with a chaotic young man she meets through a chance encounter on a train platform.

Babyteeth is stark and honest about the dysfunction rampant in the contemporary Australian family and society at large, about the roles that people find themselves forced to play in order to 'fit in', and how they force this role playing on others. For a young girl facing her mortality, these machinations seem like farce - why would anyone live like that when their life is all that they have?

As the young man, Moses, says, why would anyone pigeon-hole themselves into being just one thing?

Why indeed.
