Abstract:

At the front of a little hotel in a country town, a flickering sign says, 'ALL WELCOME'. There's a chandelier in the lobby, a polished wooden staircase, and a broken swing under the tree in the backyard. Fleeing a catastrophe they cannot describe, two strangers in ill-fitting clothes stagger into town, where they are offered a room by the hotelier - and a wary hospitality. No one knows where they've come from or who they are, including the young man assigned to watch them and make a note of everything they do. THE CAGE is a profound and unsettling fable about trust and fear, cruelty and compassion, dignity and hope - and about what it means to bear witness.
