A SECOND CHANCE is a drama about the consequences faced by a couple after the sudden death of their infant child.

Drugs

There are scenes of drug use in which two characters prepare and inject themselves with heroin.

Theme

The film's narrative centres around the sudden death of a child and the parents' grief as they begin to come to terms with what's happened in the immediate moments following the tragedy.

A young baby is neglected by its parents and is seen lying in an unsafe environment, covered in excrement, as it is ignored by its parents. There is also a brief shot in which a child is seen being shaken by an adult.

There is an abusive relationship in which a man physically and verbally abuses his partner; he is seen hitting and shouting at her and also forces her to take drugs.

Language

There are two uses of very strong language ('c**t'), one of which is aggressive. There is also strong language ('f**k').

There is an implied scene of suicide when a character stands on a bridge; their body is later seen floating in the river, though there is no strong injury detail.
