LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON is a subtitled Japanese drama about parents who belatedly discover they were given the wrong baby in hospital.

Sex

In one scene, a lawyer advises a man he would have a better chance of adopting his son if the couple parenting a child are "drug addicts or the mother uses the house to prostitute herself". In another scene, a woman says that a friend accused her of having an affair.

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON also contains a scene in which a man slaps another man on the head after being offered money to buy his child. There is also a single use of very mild language ("screw up") and a scene in which a woman smokes a cigarette.
