THE WOUND is a South African drama in which tensions rise between a group of men during a tribal initiation ceremony.

Sex

There are scenes in which two men have sex, and a scene of implied oral sex between the same couple.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), alongside milder terms including 'bitch', 'bastard', 'piss', 'shit', 'dicks' and 'asshole'. There are also several uses of the term 'faggot' and one use of 'nigger'.

Drugs

Characters smoke marijuana joints.

There is a scene in which several young men are circumcised, but this is depicted without strong detail.

There are two scenes in which goats are slaughtered, resulting in some bloody images.

Other issues include occasional moments of moderate violence and verbal sex references.
