From the critics
Other: There's a scene with what appears to be a dead cat or dog laying on a porch. I don't know if that's food or if starvation led to it's demise or what, but the animal isn't moving or breathing and it's rather sad that the filmmaker chose to show it and failed to explore it.
Violence: The culture there is that women are property and the film covers much discussion of beatings from both family members and husbands. Brides are not "sold" but there is a dowry as is still the custom in many cultures. Most villagers can't and don't pay it. There is a scene where a woman is kicked repeatedly in the face and abdomen by her brother.
