Sex

In one scene a couple have sex in the dark. A man's head appears to be near or between a woman's thighs, and a little later the woman's body writhes as the man thrusts down into her. In another scene a young man lies on top of a young woman in a mangrove swamp. They kiss and there is a fleeting glimpse of one of the woman's nipples.

Other issues include portrayals of goats being slaughtered, natural nudity, mild sex references, and a poignant scene in which a dying woman finally passes away. Infrequent mild bad language is confined to two uses of 'arse'.
