NERVE is a drama about a young woman who becomes involved in a dangerous online game in which people participate in risky dares.

Imitable Behaviour

There are scenes in which young people engage in risky and dangerous behaviour, while carrying out various dares, as they are watched and cheered on by onlookers. Some of the more dangerous dares include young people lying on train tracks, driving a motorbike blindfolded, and jumping across subway platforms. There are also scenes in which young women attempt to cross a ladder which has been suspended at height between buildings.

There are moderate sex references, including to 'screwing' and to online pornography, as well as crude written references which are posted online as a girl is seen getting changed.

There are implied written uses of strong language ('f**k'), as well as use of more moderate terms including 'bitch'. A character is seen making a middle finger gesture.
