Note: The following text may contain spoilers

DETACH-MENT is US drama about a substitute teacher who never stays at a school long enough to form attachments with either students or colleagues, but this changes when he is assigned to a failing New York City High School.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker').

Sex

Two sex scenes show a young prostitute kneeling in front of a male client and performing masked fellatio on the man. There are also several strong verbal sex references and in one scene a male teacher shows a female student an explicit, close-up photograph of the gaping vagina of a woman apparently infected with gonorrhea. The picture is medical as opposed to pornographic in nature.

Suicide

A portrayal of suicide includes a flashback in which a character recalls as a child discovering the topless body of their mother lying on her back on the floor clutching a pill bottle in her hand. In another scene, a young woman eats a poisoned cake that she has made with an unidentified powder.
