No nudity or sexual intercourse is seen. Todd learns that his girlfriend has married another man and is pregnant with his child.

The reason why Todd had gone to Juvenile Hall was because he had brutally beaten his stepfather and then urinating on him. Afterwards, he vows to not use violence again. Todd is punched in the nose by his stepfather, causing him to bleed and break his nose. He is beaten by his ex-girlfriend's new husband and later punches him and his sick friend's father.

This film contains some strong language, including f--k, s--t, p--s, and others.

Characters smoke.

The scene in which Todd is punched by his stepfather is notably graphic. As well, Lerner tries to enhance the angst that Todd feels with clever camera angles and a mildly tense score. All in all, this is about a PG-13 and, depending on your opinion, probably shouldn't be viewed by children under 12.
