ROOM is a drama about a young woman and her son who struggle to adjust to life after having been confined in a small room for several years.

Language

Occasional use of strong language ('f**k'), some of it aggressively delivered. There is also moderate and mild bad language, including uses of 'bitch', 'butt', 'God' and 'Jesus'.

Theme

A female character states that she has been kept a prisoner for several years, having been abducted when she was seventeen years of age. The motivation of her abductor appears to have been sexual.

Other issues include scenes in which it is implied the young woman is being required to have sex with her captor, a suicide attempt and moderate threat.
