Helen is restrained in several ways including being handcuffed, pinned down, strapped to a table, and strapped to a chair. These are all done to her in self defense or by a doctor.

A story about a young boy being attacked is shown. The young boy is shown with his genitals removed, writhing and screaming. Very upsetting.

Later, an extended scene where a cop demands the main character undress. She is crying and covered in blood. Extended scene that is very dehumanizing/triggering.

Helen is forced to strip by police. There's also a scene of her bathing but her parts are mostly obscured by her arms and the water. One of the murder victims is shown completely naked but that scene is brief.
