"La Gàbia" (2019) by Marian Raméntol & Cesc Fortuny is the film that closes the Tri Laksana trilogy based on the Buddhist concepts of impermanence, desire and suffering and composed of two other short films:

#2 - "Duhkha"-2018: https://www.viridiana.tv/videos/duhkha
Through the introspective journey of the protagonist diagnosed with a terminal illness, the Buddhist concept of attachment is addressed. In Buddhism, attachment is called "upadana", one of the main causes of anguish because, if everything is ephemeral, clinging to it condemns us to dissatisfaction. From a train journey to a walk by the sea, everything is a painful introspection, uncomfortable and full of discomfort provoked by the instinctive affection for life.
