**SPOILER**

When Chase and Kya are dating, he tells her about how he is going to marry her only for her to later find out he was betrothed to someone else. He gaslights her afterwards with a “you know we wouldn’t have worked out” spiel.

No, however there is an attempted rape on screen, and a pretty uncomfy sexual scene where the character technically consented and seemed into it to start but doesn't enjoy the experience.

One could argue Kya has PTSD from her father beating her family and herself. It’s definitely evident when she describes living in fear for her life later in the movie.

There are a few scenes filmed with shaky cam. It’s easy enough to look away for those few times. It did not deter me from watching the movie.

The “sexual” scenes are more sensual than explicit. I believe there is one for sure sex scene, but all others are making out and heavy petting.
