Several juvenile characters die throughout the movie, including a few who are shot or beaten to death by prison guards. The guards then try to frame their deaths on other inmates.

A prison guard refers to the juvenile inmates as "deaf, blind and dumb." In another scene, a teenager makes an ableist joke about another he knew in the reformatory who wore a metal cast.
