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 to popular public hotspots commonly used for sex among young people, known by the locals as “pikaderos”. 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.
