violence
A teenage boy is attacked by a gang, punched down and stamped on in undetailed fashion. A man demonstrates abusive, controlling behaviour towards his wife and teenage daughter, and a mother slaps her daughter during a heated argument.
threat and horror
There is moderate threat in scenes depicting undetailed road accidents. Young people display fear and panic when they find themselves in a strange, featureless white space which represents the afterlife.
language
There is moderate bad language ('bitch'), as well as milder terms such as 'shit', 'piss', 'tits', 'bollocks', 'bloody', 'arse', 'damn', 'hell' and 'God'.
discrimination
An older white man demonstrates racist attitudes towards a Black teenage boy, stereotyping him as a delinquent and a drug dealer, and calling him "monkey man". There are also examples of sexism and sexist language, such as woman being told that she has "top shelf looks". Discrimination is clearly disapproved of by the work as a whole.
sexual violence and sexual threat
There is discreet establishment of a sexual assault and the victim - a young teacher - subsequently endures verbal sexual harassment by unruly students in a classroom who are unaware of her ordeal.
theme
There are upsetting scenes centred on family discord, bereavement, illness and traumatic experiences, including a teenage girl's reaction to embarrassing images of her being posted online.
alcohol and tobacco
There are scenes of alcohol consumption, including at a teen party, in which people drink to excess.
