MY OLD LADY is a drama, set in Paris, about a man who inherits an apartment from his father, only to find it is already occupied by an old woman and her daughter, who refuse to leave.

Suicide

There are some verbal suicide references, such as when a man talks about a past suicide attempt by saying, "My razor blade slipped and cut both my wrists rather badly". The man also describes his mother's suicide attempt by leaning over a balcony, and ultimately killing herself by putting a gun in her mouth. He says she left "a terrible mess on the floor".

Sex

There are moderate sex references, such as when a French character who is reading a novel asks what a 'wang' is, and then reads the line, "His blood filled wang was in her mouth when the kettle whistled". There is also reference to a 'midnight mercy hump'.

There is moderate and mild bad language (eg 'dick', 'shit', 'crap'. 'bastard', 'son of a bitch').
