One of the story's main themes is the incestuous but consensual relationship between a man and his 13-years old cousin. The couple can be seen kissing a few times throughout the movie. In one scene they are about having sex: they both undress, then lie on a bed (the girl's bra in seen), but the man stops and says she doesn't behave like a virgin. They eventually get married.

Seldom punchings, beatings, and fights.

A man crashes a piano.

Some rude language can be heard together with a few sexual references. Nothing too strong overall.

Some drinking, smoking and drug use.

One of the film's main themes is incest with an underage girl, which can upset or disgust some people.
