Rated R for strong violence and atrocities and for language.

The movie takes place during a genocide and some of the humans in this movie are treated like dirt.

Lots of weapons are discharged, people are lined up against walls and shot.

A man comes acrossed a pit where the dead have been "stored" there is mutilation.

The violence is sad but not bloody, it is disturbing like Hotel Rwanda.

Alcohol is not an issue, but characters smoke constantly.

Many scenes in this movie can be upsetting, many people are killed.
