Free-spirited Arturo, a 16-year-old teenager from El Roblito, a small town in the state of Nayarit surrounded by mangroves; has a secret. He hangs out with children younger than him putting on dance choreographies and fun activities for them to enjoy, but when a violent incident cracks the idyllic façade of this coastal community, he is confronted with the town’s corrosive machismo. Arturo is only truly free when away from people, where his most intimate desires can be expressed. In order to bask in that truth, he must gather the courage to come out of the closet to his parents. But that brave feat is easier said than done.
