Mary Baker - The American Dentist
"I'm part of the great fabric of European history. When books are written about 19th century France, my name will live on in them".
Loosely based on Thomas W Evans' Recollections of The Second French Empire, the unlikely tale begins with our tooth-obsessed hero arriving in Paris in 1848, where he quickly becomes indispensable to Napoleon III and destined to change the course of history...
Mary Baker's comedy drama about democracy, diplomacy and dentistry
