[The main character is Violet, a 12 year old child prostitute played by Brooke Shields, who was 12 years old at the time of filming.]

After implied sex with a grown man, Violet is seen laying face down on a bed, with her dress only covering her lower half (her nipple is seen briefly during commotion after waking up).

A man and woman walk in on Violet as she bathes (her flat chest and nipples are seen). She stands up, turns to face them, and covers herself with a towel, but the woman takes it away (full screen version only - when she stands, her bare genitals are briefly seen, including her bare buttocks).

Violet is seen laying naked on a daybed to be photographed by a man (we see her flat chest and nipples, and bare pubic region). She soon gets up and causes trouble, and is thrown out of the room by the man (we see her flat chest and nipples throughout, as well as her bare buttocks at great length; full screen version - during the shot where she sits up on the daybed, we accidentally see a glimpse of white panties no doubt for modesty sake during filming; when she is causing trouble, she is wearing a very thin skin colored thong).

We see a naked man and woman sleeping on a bed, and Violet tickles the woman's face (though the woman is covered up, we briefly see the woman's breasts during the commotion of her waking up; we see no nudity from the man).

A woman sitting on a couch exposes her breasts for a man to photograph her while Violet is sitting near her the entire time (we see the woman's bare breasts at great length).

A man slaps Violet.

Violet is whipped as punishment.

Other mild violence.

Some mild profanity

Plenty of alcohol is drunk by many people and occasionally by children.

Cocaine is used in one scene.

Violet is carried swiftly to a shed where she gets a whipping.

Some people may be disturbed by the amount of underage nudity.
