COMMENTS: The story explores the live of a young prostitute-Tess living in Cape Town, it touches on the previous live of Tess as a little girl being sexually abused while her mother was watching and how she deals with the reality of pregnancy, having been trapped between aborting and giving the baby up for adoption. Themes of prostitution, drugs, abuse, adoption, pregnancy, rape, gang bang and childhood sexual abuse are mature complex which is dark in nature. Themes are harmful, confusing, distressing and/ or
upsetting therefore not suitable for children under 16 years old. Themes are meant to educate rather than cause a moral and psychological harm and are within context.
