However, in a subsequent scene, a woman teaches him how to deliver the gesture in an appropriate way, so that it is not offensive.</p></dd></dl><p>There are also scenes in which injury is implied; however; there is very limited detail.</p><p>In one scene, a man says he is suffering from terminal cancer.
