Bangladesh | 6 | Drama | 2017 | Short Film (Live Action) | NO DIALOGUE

This is the story of a woman who lives in a city where she is inevitably surrounded by a hectic pace of life. Despite living in the thick of it, thousands of women like her in the city remain unaffected outright by its pace. Rather, their life looks like a motionless, caged bird. The bird apparently seems much happier when looked at from outside: a beautiful home, food and almost everything have been well taken care of. Yet somewhere deep down in its heart, it still tries to escape, to find the lost freedom and to restore the inner peace." A Bird in the Cage" reflects the life story of a suppressed woman.
