A character drinks out of a bucket of what appears to be vomit or dirty water in a hospital out of desperation. It happens pretty early on in the hospital scene. If you are very sensitive I’d look away for a few seconds. I didn’t get too triggered by that but I understand it may be enough to trigger others. Other than that the movie is safe.
