Violence/gore: Many cutaways are done to avoid actually showing injuries happen. A man is shot, then his attacker shoots himself. A man suffers from radiation poisoning and dies. Soldiers attack with artillery and injure a woman. The injury is shown after the explosion. In a dream, a man appears to be taken into the atmosphere bit by bit. Soldiers kidnap a man. A man chases down a truck and forces it to crash.

Language: Some profanity.

Sensuality: A man and a woman are in bed together kissing in a dream.
