A Short film by Carlos Abascal Peiró

Produced by La fémis

Production year : 2020


Joachim is a very average man in his sixties. But he hides an obsession... or even two to be precise. He can't help but stare at the men who go to the gym across the street from his house while he devours pickles. One day, a new jar of pickles, "easy opening" , won't open ! Joachim has a vision, he's convinced that this is the sign he has been waiting for for a long time. He takes the jar and crosses the street that separates him from the object of his desire to ask for help from the sportsmen. Despite their efforts, none of the bodybuilders manage to open the jar but Joachim has reached his goal, he is FINALLY with them !
