- Infrequent use of profanity, cursing, and scatological slang
- Infrequent portrayals of weapons and hand-to-hand violence in a residential schools context, much involving children - some blood, little detail
- Infrequent portrayals of smoking and alcohol use and abuse, some in the context of addictions
- Truth and reconciliation
- The impact of residential schools
- Coping with trauma
Rated PG for violence and mature subject matter, some involving children
