Sex & Nudity

  • Talking about crushes, romance, kissing and more.
  • One naked scene in episode 8, breasts and pubes are visible.
  • There is a middle-aged man kisses and touches a teenage girl unexpectedly.
  • Some of the scenes from above take place longer than just a fraction (a bit too detailed), so definitely not for kids.
  • Trigger Warning. Full frontal female nudity of a 15 year old child.
  • Should be moderate. This is still tamer than most HBO shows

Violence & Gore

  • Violence is realistic and generally mild, but can be upsetting: a teacher marches a boy forcefully up a school hall by his ear saying "Look at the dunce!" and calling him a donkey in front of the other kids.
  • A man is stabbed in the neck and dies.
  • Domestic abuse is show throughout the show. It is not really graphic most of the time but can be shocking still
  • A man is seen being violently beaten. His face is bloody. Some blood splatter is seen
  • A man is seen being kicked and thrown down the stairs (offscreen). Quite disturbing.


  • Profanity is in Italian altrough there is subtitles and language includes: b*tch, s*it and more.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some social drinking. Some characters are smoking but we barely see it

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The show can be pretty intense at times
  • In season 2, there is a scene of a man getting beaten with some kids crying. Really intense and disturbing


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • There is a subplot where a much older man (the father of a schoolmate) tries to have sex with Elena. He passionately kisses her and rubs her genital area. This is a little disturbing to watch, as Elena is shown to be 15 years old and is clearly shocked by the man's behaviour.
  • In season 2 there is also thouch of the genitals, a rape scene and a sex scene between an older man and a young girl.
  • In season 2, a rape scene. We see the girl's breasts. Pretty graphic and disturbing

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In Season 2, Episode 1, a fearful teenage bride lingers in the bathroom on her wedding night, as her husband looms over the door, like a dark shadow. In bed, she rejects him, he slaps her motionless, then proceeds to consummate the marriage by force, while she's motionless.
