Includes some language including crude dialogue, brief strong sexual content and nudity, and thematic elements."
This film contains some strong sexual content and themes.
This film primarily deals with a young woman who is sexually involved and living with an older, middle-aged woman. Throughout the first half of the film, the young woman is frequently seen in a sheer negligee through which her bare breasts are sometimes visible. In one particularly suggestive sequence, the girl, wearing only the nightie, teases the older woman by eating food on the floor in an erotic manner; this upsets the woman.
There is also a scene early on in which the older woman, who is drunk, climbs into a taxi that two nuns are riding in. Although we do not see the incident that follows, it may be gathered from the dialogue audible from outside the vehicle that the woman is making an aggressive sexual pass at the nuns; she is then rejected from the taxi in the middle of the street.
Halfway through the film, a middle-aged woman and her younger female lover begin making out in bed. This sequence is intentionally brief (as it implies sex) and it quickly dissolves to another scene.

The most graphic sexual content occurs during the film's climax. Another predatory, older woman makes an advance on the younger girl, essentially coming between the girl and her original lover. The tone of the scene is highly adult in its presentation of a sexualized mother-daughter dynamic between the women; the older woman acts as if she is tucking in the girl, who is laying on a bed, talking to her doll. The older woman plays along and does the same with a different doll. She then sits next to the girl on the bed and begins fondling her chest, eventually opening up the girl's shirt to reveal her breasts, and they engage in passionate foreplay. The older woman kisses the chest, neck and mouth of the girl, then moves her hand downward; it is implied that she performs digital penetration on the younger female, who thrusts and groans loudly.
