Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this unique movie is actually a collection of five short films about people affected by breast cancer. It contains some sexual innuendo, strong language ("bitch," "ass," etc.), and some limited violence. Drinking and smoking is also visible. A woman's chest is shown after healing from a mastectomy. Despite these mature themes, the overall series sends very positive messages about fighting the disease, as well as the importance of getting mammograms and having the support of family and friends.
- Sexual Content
