ABOUT

Pikadero has screened at over 40 international film festivals and won multiple awards worldwide.

 

Unable to fly the nest due to the economic crisis that grips Spain, a penniless, young couple have trouble consummating their fledgling relationship in their parents' homes. As they become increasingly desperate to make love and with no money to afford a hotel, they are forced to look for local public hotspots used for sex, known as picaderos. However, things are never as easy as they seem and their relationship is quickly tested as they try to break free from the shackles of a crumbling economy.
