Sex & Nudity

1/10 -A man and a woman give a parting kiss. She is in her nightgown which is sheer enough to see through to the color and shape of her nipples. However, due to brief nature and otherwise emotional focus of the seen, many viewers may not notice this fact.

Violence & Gore


(Note: The violence and gore in this movie is caused by natural disaster or hardship circumstances. Although some of it may be moderately graphic, none of it is depicted for gratuity and all of it appears rather realistic and mild in depiction.)

There is little profanity, particularly given the film's theme. 2 'shits', one 'son of a bitch'.
