sexual violence and sexual threat
A woman relays how she was forced to become a sex worker, and became pregnant as a result.
Historic racism is referenced, including when a girl recalls being told she won't be able to get a certain job because of her ethnicity. An actor uses make-up to appear as a person of a different race. All discrimination is clearly condemned. A man uses a lighter to burn a tattoo from his skin. There is use of mild bad language ('ass', 'asshole') as well as milder terms including 'damn'. A man is referred to as a woman's 'lover'. A group of men are seen showering in prison, with some visible buttock nudity.
