Are people born serial killers? The answer is: Yes!

The Baby is a raw examination of motherhood as an institution: a set of unspoken rules that affect women differently depending on how they’re viewed by society, from the perspective of a woman who doesn't want to be a mother. It explores the powerful anxiety around the toughest decisions any of us can make, whether or not to have a child.

Michelle De Swarte plays Natasha, an emotionally arrested, flawed 38-year-old who is furious that all of her closest friends are having babies. When Natasha unexpectedly ends up with a baby as well, her life of doing what she wants, when she wants, dramatically implodes. Controlling, manipulative, incredibly cute, but with violent powers to control and manipulate those around it. The baby twists Natasha's life into a surreal 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? As Natasha discovers the true extent of the baby's deadly nature, Natasha makes increasingly desperate attempts to get rid of it. Natasha doesn't want a baby, but the baby definitely wants her.
