Gustavo 'Turnpike' Sanchez is a man with a mission: he is planning to replace every last one of his unsightly teeth. Studying auctioneering under Grandmaster Oklahoma and the famous country singer Leroy Van Dyke, Highway travels the world, amassing his collection of 'collectibles' and perfecting his own specialty: the allegoric auction. In his quest for a perfect set of pearly whites, he finds unusual ways to raise the funds, culminating in the sale of the jewels of his collection: the teeth of the 'notorious infamous' - Plato, Petrarch, Chesterton, Virginia Woolf et al. 'The Story of My Teeth' is an idiosyncratic journey that offers an insightful meditation on value, worth and creation, and the points at which they overlap.
