In the small town of El Roblito, wild horses gallop through the streets and children roam the nearby mangrove forests. But 16-year-old Ñoño has a secret: Ñoño loves to dress in women’s clothes. When a violent situation disrupts the seemingly idyllic atmosphere, with its suggestion of corrosive machismo, Ñoño takes the bold step of coming out to his parents. In this gorgeously photographed snapshot of rural Mexico, cinematographer-turned-director Bruno Santamaría reveals repression, violence, and beauty in equal measures and the exquisite story of an individual who bravely defies the gender norms of their society. 75 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
