COMMENTS: The material contains complex and mature themes of love triangle relationship, religious family, sexual identity, deception, betrayal, judgment, persecution, friendship, having courage, discrimination against homosexuality and hiding a true sexual identity in order to be accepted by family and the society. These themes are presented within a drama and romance context. They carry a strong sense of threat and menace. The themes of a father having hatred towards homosexual and calling them sinners and that they going to hell; being judgemental and strong impact language with sexual references may be morally, emotionally and psychologically harmful to children under the age of 16 years who have not fully developed their identity. Children under the age of 16 years who may still be developing their sexual identity, may be afraid to speak up if they are homosexuals based on how the movie showed judgemental to them with very minimal disapproval when Kaya said “ you need to accept your daughter for who she is”.
