|Language||The use of crude language is fairly frequent and has a moderate impact used in expressing surprise, fear, concern, anxiety, anger, frustration and regret and conversationally. |
|Violence||It is infrequent and of low impact with no injury or blood-letting.|
|Drug abuse||None (sic)|
|Comments||The themes are complex, mature, adult and positive themes of moderate impact based on tacking drug addiction, effects of drugs and consequences of actions, a mother’s tough love, redemption and forgiveness, love, rehabilitation and forgiveness providing emotional and psychological support to drug addicts mitigating negative themes. The themes focus on a relevant issue affecting many families in different societies. They are educational and inspiring with messages to warn teenagers of the dangers of drug consumption and abuse, containing a strong anti-abuse message and measures to prevent it thus creating awareness and being a cautionary tale. Therefore, viewers of 13 years will learn the long-lasting consequence of drug use which mitigates the negative aspect of the drug use theme. There are also negative themes of drug addiction, manipulation, fear, drug dealing, deceit and lies, rejection and death. The themes are laced with a moderate sense of threat and menace and the tone is sombre with a sense of fear and doom. The theme manifestation might cause emotional and moral harm to viewers younger than 13 because the characters are all highly emotionally charged. They might misinterpret the tension as menace. Themes like drug addiction, overdose and dealing could be morally harmful, upsetting, disturbing and distressing for viewers younger than 13.|
