CAGE is a short movie about healing, control, and illusions of dominance. The narrative projection of viewership is the main subject of this short; as the movie subverts the exploitative cinematic portrayal of a D/S relationship. Substituting violence with care, it is made clear that the dynamic between Lili and Hans is therapeutic rather than sexual. Lili is a universal metaphor for illusions of control, and portrays a healthy role model for individualization through consent.

The music was written by Ana Rita Costa @mayan_dj_ ; the notes and chords based on the title:

C, A, G, E, (Dó, Lá, Sol and Mi).

The chord progression in different layers was made in the major scale, with musical themes rising and falling in tones to emphasize the emotional undertones. Usince pads to create different atmospheres, and notes played over organs and cellos, space was formed to let emotions flow.
