Elise needs a personal assistant. And a little assurance from her husband Rod that her marriage isn't falling apart. Rod just needs a quiet moment alone to get his head together and get the stranger in paint splattered jeans quietly out the door. Everybody needs to get that painting off the wall. BABY TEETH looks at what happens when who we think we are and what we think we want collide with our unexpressed appetites and desires.
