The main character begins to act like his father who wasn't a good person, however it's debatable if the father was abusive as he dies before the events of the film so we don't actually see him, only hear other character's opinions on him.

From the way the main character and his siblings describe their childhood, it's clear that he was the "golden child" and was favoured by his father. However, it's somewhat unclear if the father was actively abusive to the others. The father dies before the events of the film, and the siblings are all adults.

The main theme of the film is the main character's frustrations at the publishing industry for publishing what he considers stereotypical black stories made for white people. A lot of discussion of what it means to be "black" and how to depict that experience accurately is discussed heavily throughout the film.

Two scenes involve a character getting shot, but it is all in the main character's head/imagination. Not too bloody.
