CommentsThe material contains complex and mature, dramatic themes that contain emotional undertones and explore family relationships, love, father and son relationships, infidelity, secrets and betrayal, unemployment, pride and revenge. Themes carry a sense of threat and menace which could potentially lead to the arousal of fear in younger viewers. Themes may distress, disturb and confuse viewers under the age of 16 as they are not cognitively mature enough to fully understand the material and contexts therein. Themes may also cause emotional and moral harm in viewers younger than 16 due to the presence of emotional undertones and clear emotional distress of the characters.
