violence
A person is shot, resulting in a spurt of blood and strong bloody aftermath detail. Cops are shown repeatedly slapping the faces of frightened suspects and witnesses.
threat and horror
There are scenes of moderate threat, including ones in which a man experiences disturbing hallucinations of a boy in bloodstained clothing.
language
There is use of strong language (‘f**k’) and implied strong language (e.g. ‘fook’, ‘fu–’). Milder terms include ‘whore’, ‘bitch’, ‘shit’, ‘bastard’, ‘saala’ and ‘ass’.
discrimination
A female police detective faces unfair treatment and derogatory comments at work on the basis of her gender. She consistently stands up to her colleagues’ sexist behaviour, and the work carries a clear anti-sexism message.
drugs
There are occasional references throughout the film to a person’s addiction to unspecified pills. Drug misuse is not condoned.
sexual violence and sexual threat
A female police officer faces condemnation and disciplinary action at work after a video of her having sex at the age of 17 is distributed online without her consent. We see two of her male colleagues watching part of the video on a phone; the extract shows a man approaching her in a bedroom and roughly gripping her hair, but there is no further detail. There are also non-graphic verbal references to a woman having been sexually abused at the age of 12 by a male guardian. In another scene we see a male cop harassing a female stranger over the phone.
suicide
There are undetailed verbal references to the theory that a missing person may have taken their own life.
injury detail
There are strong images of spurting blood and severed limbs, in addition to gory close-up images of a hatchet blade cutting into flesh during scenes in which a person dismembers a dead body as part of a traditional ‘sky burial’. In other scenes a man is troubled by hallucinations of a boy covered in blood.
nudity
A person strips naked in order to perform a religious ritual involving a nude corpse; however, the detail is largely obscured by pixelation.
theme
There are scenes of emotional distress. A man dealing with drug addiction and mental health challenges stemming from his traumatic childhood suffers a series of upsetting hallucinations.
alcohol and tobacco
There are occasional scenes involving alcoholism.
