Violence & Gore

  • The daughter hits a kid at school and when the parents find out, the son asks if she is "going to get a spanking". This insinutates the children have been abused before, knowing to ask if they are going to get hit/beat. No children are punished though.
  • Todd slides into third base during a church softball game, resulting in a sickening crunch and what appears to be a severely broken leg. We see him writhing in pain on the ground and glimpse the bloody wound. One of the first people to his side says "it looks like a spiral fracture". With blood present it was possibly a compound fracture having broken the skin.
  • Defending her little brother from taunts at school, Cassie hits two bullies in the face. She's disciplined by the school, but Dad expresses nothing but pride in her.
