TEETH is a story of sexual awakening like you've never seen before.

High-school student Dawn works hard at suppressing her budding sexuality by being the most active member of the local chastity group. Her task is made even more difficult by a string of male admirers and her bad-boy stepbrother's provocative behaviour at home.

A stranger to her own body, Dawn is extremely innocent and nave. When she uncovers a shocking discovery about herself she is initially terrified and upset, but she soon realises she has a formidable defence mechanism to ward off unwanted advances - a set of teeth where you'd least expect...

As a result Dawn experiences both the pitfalls and the power of being a living example of the 'vagina dentata' myth with her anatomical uniqueness.
