Synopsis

Pi-ka-de-ro. Basque, noun.
1. Riding school.
2. A place used for sexual encounters.
Gorka is approaching 30 and still living with his parents. Affected by the recession that grips Spain, he’s lucky to have his temporary job working at a local toolmaking factory. He recently met the beautiful Ane who, in her late twenties, is also still living with her parents. The time to consummate their relationship has arrived. But where? They have no privacy at home and Gorka can’t afford a hotel room. So the two set off in their car in search of a Pikadero. But between a series of mirthful mishaps, Ane’s plans to emigrate, and Gorka’s fear of the future, it’s not easy finding the right moment.
