The character of the mother is restrained, including being handcuffed at her hands and feet. She is cuffed while giving birth. She is also handcuffed during a sexual assault, though the assault takes place off-screen.

It's not graphic. It plays a pretty big part in the story, but the actual act is cut out; only the before and after are shown.

A bus of refugees is set on fire. Many on the bus had already been killed by gunfire, but there are several people still alive when it is set on fire. A young girl is pulled from the bus and watches her mother, alive, being burned. The girl runs to the bus, but is shot in the head before she can get to it.

No, but there are two sequences involving babies being taken from their mother. In one, a young woman is forced to give up her newborn, who is carried away from her and she does not know where it is taken. Later, a woman gives birth to twins in prison and they are taken from her with the intention of drowning them. However, a character takes mercy on them and hides the babies until the mother gets out of prison.

A little girl is shot in the head on screen. It is implied that many other children have died in various acts of bombing/terrorism. A child (maybe 12 years old?) is killed by a sniper.

A little girl watches her mother being burned alive. The death of the main characters' mother is the inciting incident for everything that happens in the film.

Not homeless per se, but many people are forced to relocate or driven from their homes because of violence.

It's definitely not happy, but not sad either necessarily. I'd say it has a neutral open ending. The film tells a story; it's up to you to sort out your feelings about it.
