A baby appears in the middle of the night at an antique shop and begins to dance on top of a music box. The baby’s name, as the title suggests, may as well be Betty. She (according to the director) is a ‘small and ugly, yet adorable girl.’ However, Betty is not a girl but a baby doll whose sex and sexual identity is difficult to discern. Her ugly face and awkward gestures creates a cacophonous discordance with the music box fantasy, resisting the gazes of the customers standing in front of the show window and also the audience who are watching an animated film.
