PLEASURE ISLAND is a British drama about a soldier who returns home to Grimsby and gets caught up in a seedy underworld of violence, prostitution and drug dealing while trying to help the people he cares about.

Language

Infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t') and frequent strong language ('f**k').

Violence

Strong violence includes several bloody shootings and some hand to hand fighting including a man being knocked unconscious when his head is repeatedly hit against a table.

Threat

Strong threat as a woman is left alone with a man who tries to rape her, and in a later scene where the same woman is beaten up. The beating occurs off-screen, but there is a strong sense of threat leading up to it, and the beating is then heard from the point of view of her young son who is listening from another room.

Drugs

Several scenes of drug use, including marijuana smoking and people snorting cocaine. Packets of cocaine are shown in several scenes as part of a drug smuggling storyline.
