Two young characters have sex and we briefly see rear nudity on both of them. A young girl prostitutes herself. A young man sleeps with another man for money and we hear his groans of discomfort.

A girl 'jerks off' a man.

We see total frontal nudity of a man for a split second.

Several references to gay sex and other forms.


The bodies of characters who have overdosed are seen.


Frequent subtitled profanity. Virtually every word in the book is used.


Constant drug use. Young teenagers use LSD, cannabis, angel dust and eventually heroin. We frequently see people injecting drugs and prostituting themselves to pay for their habits. There also a sustained and very disturbing withdrawal sequence in which the characters are seen sweating, shivering and vomiting.


The subject matter of young teenagers using hard drugs is quite disturbing. The scene in which two characters attempt to withdraw from heroin is very distrubing and disgusting to watch as we see them vomiting and sweating profusely. There is also a scene in which a man forcefully shoves a needle into his neck that may disturb some people.

Total explicit rating: 42/50*

*This film is strong, but it is for an audience of teenagers, because it shows the devastating effects of drugs. It's a very educational film, which can be seen from 14 to 17, depending on the maturity.
