WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD is a US drama, set in 1988, about a teenage girl whose mother goes missing, and her desire several years later to discover what happened.

Language

Frequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'shit', 'bitch', 'asshole' and 'screwing'.

Sex

Strong verbal sex references including, "I'm gonna plough you till you can't walk straight". Sex scenes include a couple losing their virginity, with some breast nudity and gentle thrusting. There's also a scene showing a man masturbating, with one hand down his pants whilst the other holds a porn magazine. There are a number of scenes in which the main character is shown topless, sometimes in sexual situations.

Moderate violence in an emotional scene in which a man grips a woman by the throat until she falls unconscious and dies. There are also a number of references to one character being a 'stoner', and one scene in which he appears to be smoking a joint, but this is not referred to and drug use is not a focus of the plot.
