SON OF A GUN is an Australian thriller about a young offender who struggles to escape from a life of crime when he becomes indebted to a violent and treacherous criminal.

Language

Infrequent use of very strong language ('c**t'), between the male inmates of a prison, as well as frequent use of strong language ('f**k'), including sexual and aggressive uses.

There is strong violence during gun battles and occasional fist fights, as well as a sequence in which a woman is briefly beaten and choked by a man.
