MOONLIGHT is a US drama following the impact of a young man's upbringing, relationships and surroundings across three periods of his life.
There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), and frequent racial language ('nigga') used informally between black characters. There is also use of homophobic language in a scene in which an adult explains to a young boy that 'faggot' is an offensive term.
Scenes of sexual activity include implied masturbation and penetration, and in one scene a character wakes up following a 'wet dream'. Strong verbal references are made to oral sex and intercourse.
There are scenes of drug dealing and characters smoking 'crack' and marijuana. The work as a whole does not condone or endorse drugs misuse.
Infrequent scenes of moderate violence include a boy being beaten by a gang of bullies, with subsequent sight of his cut and bloodied face.
