On a scale of 0 to 10: "1"

An old man can be seen in his underwear.

Pregnancy and miscarriage are discussed in the movie. For a kid it is referred as stomach ache.

An elderly man's bare back and chest are visible as his adult son bathes him and we see a small portion of an elderly man's bare chest as his adult son dresses him.

A woman instructs an elderly man to take off his pants and give himself a bath (we see the ailing elderly man sitting on a toilet, fully clothed). A woman asks an unseen person over the phone if it would be a sin for her to help the elderly man bathe. A woman tells a man that it is "not right" for her to have to clean the man's ailing elderly father.

Violence & Gore
