There is footage, filmed on a mobile phone, of a homophobic attack on a naked man in which he is kicked on the head and body, and verbally abused because of his sexuality. The victim's facial features and nudity are blurred out. A man recalls being beaten up in his apartment, again because he is gay, and shows the injuries he sustained to his face and shoulder. There are brief images of gun violence in a videogame.
