With the divorce papers on his desk, Will Hays is about to end yet another unsuccessful relationship. Detailing the events of his former life to his daughter Maya, he confesses his past sexual relationships to the youngster, using derogatory slang, descriptive terms and frank discussion about sexual activity and single parenthood. Maya repeatedly uses anatomically correct terminology to describe intercourse. Newscasts detailing Bill Clinton’s sexual activities in office are also shown. Frequent drinking at home and social gatherings are depicted along with drunken behavior. Main characters, as well as others, regularly use cigarettes although some negative comments are made about the habit. Profanities, vulgar expressions and some scatological slang are also included in the script.
