There is talk of rape.

A woman is seen putting her pants on after a rape, no nudity.

People are seen in and around the swimming pool area.

A brother shoots his sister's lover in the head.

a scene where a woman is shown after giving birth; blood is all over the sheets; there is a graphic depiction of the umbilical cord being cut; and a blood-covered baby is seen resting on its mother's breast; but the actual delivery scene isn't shown

a bus with Muslims riding in it meets a Christian militant group, while the bus driver is trying to negotiate with a soldier, he shoots the bus driver in the head; the other soldiers proceed to open fire on the passengers inside the bus; almost everyone in the bus is killed

in the same bus, there are three survivors--a mother and her young daughter and a student; the militants pour gasoline on the bus, preparing to set it on fire; the student says that she is a Christian and claims that the daughter is hers, hoping to prevent her from being killed by the soldiers. However, the daughter blows the cover by shouting for her real mother who is about to be set on fire with the bus. As the daughter runs back to join her mother in the already burning bus, a soldier shoots her dead.

3 F-words

an intense scene where a mother is set on fire with a bus full of passengers killed by a militant group; her young daughter attempts to rejoin her mother in the already burned bus but is shot down by a soldier.

The final revelation is very disturbing (the last 30m).

Deals with incest, sexual abuse. Very upsetting and uncomfortable to watch (some scenes). Not too graphic.

Rated R for some strong violence and language
