A wild eagle captured by hunters and imprisoned in an impenetrable brass cage. The eagle is seen in the story through the eyes of a brass cage. The eagle pounced on the brass lock with its beak, dug a pit in the concrete floor with its claws, and used all of its strength to crash into the brass cage, attempting to escape but failing. The brass cage was distressed to see the eagle deteriorating from mighty to thin by the day, and persuaded the eagle to give up the fight and enjoy life in the cage. Will the eagle make a concession? What psychological effects does the brass cage have on eagles?

This is a story about the dignity of animals, freedom, and love.
