SEX/NUDITY 0 - A man touches a woman's hand tenderly, and a girl talks about a woman feeling like she's an old maid.
VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - We see a house on fire and hear that a girl is stuck inside, a girl helps her out and down a tree to safety. Two girls fight, tumbling around on the ground, and one tears the other's dress. Two girls fight with shoving, one holds the other in a headlock and one rips the other's sleeve. A girl hides under a table when a man enters, he finds her, she climbs onto the table and yells at him. A man approaches a girl and a boy and begins laughing loudly scaring them, and they run away. A girl finds a wagon in the wilderness, a man comes out stretching and moaning and when the girl sees him (one of his eyes is filmy) she is frightened and runs away. A man yells at another man and threatens him. A boy yells at a pig, calling it names, after he's unsuccessful in catching him (he is now covered with mud). Two girls and a boy swing on a rope swing over a stream, while other boys taunt them and one girl slips off and falls into the water. A girl talks about her mother having died from measles. A man collapses on the ground from too much alcohol.
