Here are the comments from our panel of screenwriter professionals about this script.

When do children stop believing in the tooth fairy? Why do we have to grow up – and even if we do, why can’t we take joy from childish things? This fun short examines childhood beliefs (and when they cease) but seeks to bring a little magic to adult life. THE TOOTH FAIRY is an economical story that really hits home … literally!
