Caged is a wordless and witty tale of freedom, ingenuity, and thwarted ambition. While a bluebird builds her nest in the forest, two eccentric gentlemen have a more ambitious construction in mind: a vast palatial building made from birdcages filled with colorful parrots. As the trees come down and the structure goes up, the bluebird watches the spectacle. More and more caged birds are consigned to their fate until at last a huge dome completes the work. However, when the celebrating architects go in to admire their creation, the little bluebird brings their ambitions crashing down around them.
