Sex & Nudity

  • You see a 10 year old girl's dress or gown lifted up on several different occasions, even though the girl is however wearing a special kind of modest undies each time.
  • Couple of lip kiss scenes between lead characters, but nothing sexual implied
  • The main woman character wears a low-cut blouse, as part of her sleep wear.
  • The main woman character wears cut off shorts that are cut very short, while she's going up on an elevator.

Violence & Gore

  • For a few seconds, you see signs of vomit on the floor following a girl's vomiting episode.
  • Many scenes of a ten-year-old girl being feed through a tube. The first scene is the most graphic and emotionally upsetting, showing the test tube being shoved up her nose for about 2 seconds, while writhing in pain crying. The other scenes are more milder but are still intense.
  • There are a few scenes in the movie involving medical procedures.
  • A 10 year old girl is shown vomiting twice.


  • One non-swear use of the world "Hell"
  • A couple of uses of the word "Hell", but it refers to the place and not as a swear word. The daughter says "Hell is in California."

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A girl falls inside of a tree. She is seen with cuts and bruises on her face
  • The Beam's daughter falls ill to a digestive disease.
  • During her hospitalization, there is brief scene depicting a nurse who attempts to insert a feeding tube through her nostril. The footage lasts for a second: the tube inserted into her nose (not a close up camera shot).
  • A 10 year old girl cries in pain as rolls from side to side on her hospital bed. When she is told by her mother that it's too early to take her medicine, she tells her that she wants to die. (This is one of the most emotional scenes in the movie.)
  • A little falls inside an old tree (She ends up okay)
  • The entire movie is incredibly emotional. Parents who have lost a child or have a terminally ill child should be prepared to shed a few tears throughout the movie.
