Violence: White-collar crime is the subject of the film. Although some men are shown in handcuffs, there appears to be very few consequences for those who purportedly caused the crisis. Portrayals of soldiers engaged in war, bomb testing and street riots are depicted.

Sexual Content: A woman discusses (without specific names) those who used her high-end prostitution business on a regular basis and expensed it to their companies. Comments are made about men who went to strip bars, hired prostitutes or paid for lap dances for their business associates. Other brief suggestive comments are made about unfaithful spouses. Women in scanty or tight clothing are shown. Photographs of topless women (no explicit nudity is seen) are displayed on a computer screen.

Language: The script includes an obscene hand gesture, sexual references and some scatological slang, along with profanities and a partial sexual expletive drawn on a wall.

Alcohol / Drug Use: During comments about rampant cocaine use, a white powder is poured onto a surface and then purportedly snorted through a rolled up dollar bill. Men talk about money laundered for international drug traders. A man takes a sip of alcohol before being interviewed. Several men are shown smoking.
