Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this emotional drama explores heavy themes like the loss of a parent, raising a special needs child, and the interconnectedness of all humans. Violence -- including bombings, car accidents, and references to 9/11 -- is part of some storylines. There are also a few references to sexuality, some mild language, and occasional social drinking.

Sexual Content

Subtle references to prostitution.


The boy's mother died on 9/11, and there are references to the terrorist attack. Bombing attempts, fiery traffic accidents, and other violent events sometimes form part of the storyline. Occasional images of people pushing, shoving, and punching.


Words like "hell" and "damn" are audible.
