Kim Krejus and Sonia Peat star as a couple of disenfranchised Australian teenagers. Unemployed and bored with their listless existence at home, the kids take to the streets. With barely a pause to consider the consequences, Krejus and Peat steal, lie, con and offer themselves sexually in order to stay alive. The cinematic virtues of Mouth to Mouth, director John Duigan's second feature film, have been somewhat obscured by the critical attention given Duigan's "breakthrough" 1988 feature The Year My Voice Broke. In addition to directing this fast-paced slice of street life, Duigan also produced and wrote the screenplay.
