LILY IS a short drama in which a young girl is bullied because of her sexuality.

Violence

Strong violence includes scenes in which a young girl is bullied at school after being accused of kissing another girl. These scenes include hair pulling, pushing, punching, kicking and forcing the girl's head into a toilet bowl.

Self harm

There is a scene in which it is implied a young girl cuts her wrist with a Stanley knife. The girl's scar is shown later in the film, and discussed at various points as being a 'war scar' that can either be hidden or worn with pride.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'shit', 'bitch', 'fanny', 'bloody', 'Jesus', 'hell', 'shite', 'piss' and 'prick'. There are also discriminatory references ('dyke', 'faggot'). There are mimed gestures for 'f**k' as well as gestures alluding to oral sex.

Homophobic references and attitudes occur but are not condoned.
