Selma, a Czech immigrant on the verge of blindness, struggles to make ends meet for herself and her son, who has inherited the same genetic disorder and will suffer the same fate without an expensive operation. When life gets too difficult, Selma learns to cope through her love of musicals, escaping life's troubles - even if just for a moment - by dreaming up little numbers to the rhythmic beats of her surroundings.

The protagonist is hanged for murder. The hanging itself is very brief, though there is a somewhat graphic sound effect and her dead body is briefly from a distance in a wide shot.

(Spoiler)
At the end of the film, the protagonist begins to sing while on the gallows. She is hanged suddenly before she can finish the song. It is very loud and jarring.

The protagonist ends up panicking or screaming in multiple scenes. The acting is very convincing and it is intense and difficult to watch.

A character threatens the protagonist with a gun. She attempts to take the gun away from him and accidentally shoots him. He orders her to kill him and she attempts to comply, but due to being blind, she misses and only further injuries him with the gun.
