No, but parents with intellectual disabilities betray their children by settling for money instead of prosecuting their children’s abusers.

A man makes a cruel joke at a boy he sexually abused, asking if he wants a bath. This references the method he abused the boy and his younger brother.

No, but since the children victims are minors, their parents/grandparents settle for money instead of prosecuting the perpetrators. Officially they “forgive” the crime, which is mentioned to one of the traumatized children when he learns he is no longer allowed to testify.

There is an awful moment where a girl hides in a locked bathroom stall, but her abuser appears above her from the other stall. We anticipate it so not exactly a jump scare. There are other moments where the predatory man appears or is shown in a jarring manner.

It’s very hard to explain. It’s sad in the sense that the children didn’t get justice and another child died, but has a good ending in the sense that more people come forward to help prevent this happening again.
