Violence: Death threats, executions and murders are frequently discussed. People live in fear of being killed. Victims of violence recount their stories of being shot (with little graphic detail). Re-enactments of men gunning down students on a school bus, and a wounded girl being transported to medical care are purposely shot to obscure most details, although some blood is seen. Animation is used to depict some portions of this story, including a battle between warring soldiers where weapons are seen, and death and killing implied. Historical news footage is used and shows depictions of blood where shootings have occurred, a bloodied corpse, surgical procedures and bombed out buildings. Scars from life-threatening injuries are shown and the damage of a bullet wound to the brain is discussed. Slapping children as a punishment is mentioned. The documentary also shows other girls, children and refugees who are suffering because of poverty, war and terrorist acts. A father feels guilt over allowing his child to be hurt.
Sexual Content: A teen girl looks at pictures of handsome celebrities on her laptop.Modesty and the covering of one’s head and face are mentioned.
Language: Siblings exchange some name-calling.
Alcohol / Drug Use: None noted.
