When 38 year-old Natasha is unexpectedly landed with a baby, her life of doing what she wants, when she wants, dramatically implodes. Controlling, manipulative and with violent powers, the baby twists Natasha's life into a horror show. Where does it come from? What does it want? And what lengths will Natasha have to go to in order to get her life back?

Terrifying and darkly comic, The Baby gleefully deconstructs the 'joy of motherhood', exploring the powerful anxiety of whether or not to have children, questioning who gets to choose 'motherhood' and who doesn't.

She doesn't want a baby. The baby wants her.
