Life has a strange way of circling around, sometimes closing and sometimes repeating. Especially for women, enduring it requires tremendous inner strength. We all wear facades sometimes, but true authenticity comes from trying to resemble the version of yourself that you always dreamed you could be.
Positive Role Models & Representations
One scene shows a sexual assault with one of the victim's breasts clearly shown. There's hitting, struggling with a knife, a hard hit on the back of the head with a rock, and blood streaming from a nose. Later the victim's bruised and swollen face is shown. A fatal car crash is shown with non-graphic, blurry images; anguished cries are heard. Important characters die.
A prostitute pickup point briefly shows two topless women. Prostitutes in scanty clothing pose suggestively. Brief, simulated glimpse of man receiving oral sex. A pregnant nun is a major plot point. A woman grabs a transgender woman's breast several times. Lots of frank talk about sexual acts using crude language. A character is HIV-positive.
In translation from Spanish: "f--k," "whore," "c--k," "d--k," "bitch," "t--ts," "s--t," "screwing," "ass" (body part), "asshole," "bulls---ters," "bastard," "blow job," "hell," "lesbo," "suck you off," "damn," "faggot," and "slut."
Ease of Play
Actors in a play drink from wine and beer bottles. A woman drinks from a flask when she hears bad news. Adults drink champagne in celebration. A minor character is a drug addict; some discussion about her addiction, looking for her when she's out seeking drugs, and in one scene she smokes something behind a closed door. Many background people smoke, and one central character smokes regularly. Scenes from a play show actors smoking on stage.
