language

There is strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms such as 'shit', 'bloody', 'arse', 'piss', 'hell' and 'God'.

threat and horror

A woman is attacked by a man and threatened verbally with being hurt unless she complies with his demands. The threat is not sexual. There is an implied murder by drowning. There are also scenes of tonal supernatural threat, with occasional jump scares, as the ghostly figures of dead children appear to a woman, and a man is dragged into a cane field by an unseen force. There is brief sight of the aftermath of a suicide by hanging.

theme

There are references to the deaths of children by both accident and murder, and scenes of emotional distress in which family members struggle to come to terms with their loss.


There is brief drug misuse and infrequent drug references.
