Third Wing by Claudio Tolcachir, translated by Jean Graham Jones and directed by Jose Ignacio Vivero
In Third Wing forgotten employees complete obsolete tasks and search for meaning. Their spouses and children occupy the same incongruous space, a basic workplace that overflows with office supplies and drab furniture, where we see the characters appear in restaurants, doctors' offices, and private homes.
This explains that they exist in a place that doesn't have any more reason for being; its services have no meaning and the workers don't have any reason for being either. We observe them inhabiting the same physical space yet living in largely isolated worlds, held captive by their claustrophobic existence and the price of their limited economic possibilities and even more limited opportunities for happiness. In reality, they have an enormous need to love. The characters avoid speaking the truth about themselves, but realities they don't mean to reveal and may not recognize become poignantly apparent.
