The material contains complex and mature moderate impact themes which are presented in a context of a crime drama genre. Themes are negative which explore street culture with gang warfare, impoverished community, street kids thieving, lies, betrayal, disappointing acts by police officers failing the society, police brutality, corrupt police officials, collusion to commit crime, attempted murder, criminal activities, violent protests, riots and attacks, tempering with incriminating evidence by police officers, revenge and taking law into own hands. Positive themes include regret for wrong doing, teamwork, fighting over crime, being disciplined and children fighting for their rights. Positive themes do not mitigate the negative themes in the film because there are no positive resolutions. The film end with creating solutions of dealing with crime by using criminal activities. Issa revenges bad policing by not reporting the matter to their seniors but by committing a life threatening crime himself. This is by mobilising other teenagers to a violent revolt which could lead to murder. The violent revenge and revolt by teenagers is psychological, emotional, distressing and morally harmful likely to be imitable by children in any community. Themes cannot be suitable to children under 16 whom cognitively may be immature to comprehend such acts in context.
