SILENT DUST is a British drama about a blind man grieving for his son after the Second World War who slowly comes to realise that his son may not have died a heroic death after all.

Violence

Mild violence includes a fight scene between two men where they exchange blows, one of them using a walking stick as a weapon. There is also a flashback to the war, where soldiers try to take cover from an air attack and two of them are hit. Dialogue explains that one of them "had his head blown off", but this is not shown.

Injury detail

A man jumps through a window during a chase scene and cuts his cheek on broken glass in the process. This is shown as a large bloody cut on his cheek, but as the film is in black and white the impact is reduced. Later, he has a scar on his face from this old injury. There is also a scene where a man is killed in a fall from a balcony. His body is shown on the ground with eyes staring open, but there is no strong or gory injury detail.

There is also frequent cigarette smoking, as is common in films from this era.
