TRACKS is a film based on a true story about a woman called Robyn Davidson who embarked on a lengthy trek across the Australian desert in the 1970s.
Five uses of strong language ('f**k'), only one of which is aggressive and directed. There is also some milder bad language ('prick', 'bitches', 'shit', 'bastard', 'bloody', 'hell', 'Jesus').
In one scene, there is implied camel castration. There is no detail of the act, although there is sight of a man holding the animal's severed testicles. In another scene, Robyn has to shoot and kill feral camels that are threatening her. There are brief bullet impact wounds and sight of blood. There is also a scene in which a dog is accidentally poisoned, vomits and dies. Assurances were given by the film makers that no animals were harmed or mistreated.
Natural female nudity occurs during a scene in which Robyn swims naked in a water tank, and in another scene in which she wanders naked in the desert. The film also contains scenes of adults smoking cigarettes.
