Something strange has happened in a rather quiet ordinary town - and no one knows if the townsfolk will ever recover! You see, Grandad awoke one morning to find a shattered glass by his bed, spilled water on his side table and his teeth missing! Someone has crossed the line of the law and now everyone is a suspect. Grandad is relentless in his quest to find the culprit although at times he is depressed that he has no teeth. Soon, a smiling frenzy takes over town as everyone wants to show their own pearly whites to prove their innocence. But no one can smile forever - just who did steal Grandad's teeth?
