COMPLIANCE is a drama in which a fast food restaurant manager is told that his female employee has been accused of theft and this requires that she be detained and searched.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k') as well as milder terms.

Violence

Sexual abuse and humiliation occur during a number of scenes as the prank caller, posing as a police officer, insists that it will assist the police investigation if the manager strip searches the female employee. When the manager is instructed to arrange for a man to guard the employee in a back office, the manager's fiance is called to the restaurant. The caller insists that the employee's apron be removed, leaving her naked, and asks the fiance to describe her breasts and genitals. The employee is made to do exercises on the pretense of dislodging money that she is alleged to have stolen and hidden inside herself. The fiance is told to spank the employee and it is implied that the employee is forced to perform oral sex on the fiance. In all these scenes the abusive acts are portrayed with some discretion. Breast nudity is shown but nudity is otherwise hidden and the acts of spanking and oral sex are not shown with any visual detail.
