UNA is a British drama in which a young woman confronts a middle aged man, looking for answers about their abusive relationship which occurred when she was thirteen years old.


The film features a theme of child sexual abuse and includes verbal references to such abuse. In one scene abuse is implied to be taking place in a park after a man and a teenage girl disappear behind some bushes, but nothing explicit is shown.
