MUSTANG is a subtitled Turkish language drama about five young sisters who are imprisoned in their house by their grandmother as punishment for their perceived flirtatious behaviour, and to keep them unsullied for their future husbands.

Sex

There is a scene in which one of the sisters explains she has anal sex with her boyfriend, in order to avoid getting pregnant and to remain a virgin for her husband-to-be.

The film also contains several more moderate references to sexual behaviour, development and virginity, and a scene of implied sexual activity between one of the sisters and a young man; however, there is no strong detail.

One character commits suicide; however this occurs offscreen and there is no detail.

There is also some moderate and mild bad language (for example, an offensive middle finger gesture, plus uses of 'whore', 'shit', 'arseholes', 'bastards', 'hell').
