Some sort of substance was smoked during the poetry scene.

Many people are seen grieving as they go through personal tragedy. One man, in particular, is dealing with the tragic death of his son and the abandonment of his wife. In one scene, he describes his child's death, which happened when the child came onto his father's construction site and had his spinal cord snapped in two in an accident.

A grieving man breaks down in tears at the end of the movie as he blames himself for his wife's death.

During an activity at a grief seminar, the leader of the group encourages everyone to walk over burning embers with their bare feet. Nobody is injured until the group leader stands over the embers for an extended period of time and ends up burning his feet. His blistered feet are shown in the next scene.

A man in a state of duress allows himself to sink to the bottom of a pool. He is in a sitting position with his eyes wide open, and it appears that he might be committing suicide, although he arrives at work in the next scene and is fine. This may require some explanation if you are watching with younger viewers.
