language

A child makes a middle finger gesture through a bus window. There is also mild bad language ('shit', 'crap', 'bastard').

suicide

A man insensitively tells a young child that the previous occupant of his home took his own life, mimicking a gunshot to the head.


There is a scene of mild threat in which a building is set on fire and a family attempt to save their crop from the flames. In one scene, children make discriminatory comments about the appearance and language of two Korean-American children, due to their lack of awareness or understanding. Discrimination is not condoned, and the children soon become friends. There is brief bloody injury detail after a drawer falls on a child's leg and cuts him. There are also some upsetting scenes, such as a woman having a stroke, and two children being concerned when their parents argue. A child tricks his grandmother into drinking his urine. Some children experiment with chewing tobacco. When a child repeatedly wets the bed, his grandmother laughs and says 'Penis broken', to which he replies, 'It's called a ding-dong'. A father threatens to hit his son with a stick as punishment for his bad behaviour.
