CommentsThe material contains complex and mature themes with a strong sense of threat and menace. It explores themes of a dysfunctional family, single parenthood, dealing with gangsterism, drug and gun dealings, being betrayed by a law enforcement, organised crime and crime investigation. Themes that deal with gangsterism, gun and drug dealing which seem to be profitable may morally mislead cognitively immature impressionable viewers as they misinterpret the context of the storyline and think that the ‘glamorised’ crime is profitable, although some people were arrested in the end. Furthermore drug dealings and innocent victims being shot may be upsetting, distressing and distressing for younger viewers.
