violence

A man is repeatedly beaten in front of a distressed child by a police officer whilst being arrested. In another scene, the same man is beaten, accompanied by brief close-ups of the victim's cut and bloodstained face. There is also a scene in which a woman repeatedly beats a man; however, the blows are all masked. There is also criminal behaviour in a scene in which a gang rob a motorcycle showroom.


In one scene, a man tries to take his own life by riding his motorbike into a swamp; however, he survives. A woman places her baby boy in the river; however, she subsequently removes the infant from the water before he drowns. There are brief verbal references to domestic abuse perpetrated on a man by his foster family, a brief scene of likely marijuana smoking, as well as references to death and illness, and scenes of emotional upset.
