flashing/flicking lights

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.

language

There is strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k'), as well as milder terms (for example, 'bitch', 'son of a bitch', 'tits', 'asshole', 'shit', 'damn', 'hell').

sex

There are consensual scenes in a sex club in which hot wax is briefly poured onto the face and arm, and a brief scene in which men are whipped over their shirts. There is no strong injury detail. There are also strong verbal sex references, and scenes in sex clubs in which scantily-clad women dance suggestively.

sexual violence and sexual threat

The film contains scenes in which women are groped by men in a hostess club. This behaviour is both challenged and clearly disapproved of in the context of the film. It is implied that a young woman is raped whilst unconscious. Sexual violence is not shown; however, it is clear that the rape has been uploaded to the internet.


There is brief domestic abuse in a scene in which an irate father pushes his daughter against a wall. There are also scenes of alcohol consumption.
