Things We Dare Not Do

WATCH THE TRAILER

The island of El Roblito in Nayarit Mexico, surrounded by jungles and an open sea, appears to be inhabited only by children. El Roblito seems like a pure and idyllic place that lacks adult supervision - until the children’s actions slowly reveal signs of the adults’ repressive behavior and the negative influences that loom over their childhood.
