This Christian movie about life on the inner-city streets covers such issues as drug trafficking, prostitution, substance abuse and gang violence. While most of these depictions are brief, they do include a gang related beating where some blood is shown, some characters being threatened with a gun, the mention of pimps and abortion, as well as a young child being used to purchase drugs. Addictions portrayed include alcoholics drinking from bottles, a character identified as a junkie, and a man with a passion for lottery tickets. A few mild swear words and some racial slurs are heard throughout, most of which are uttered by a pastor.
