The Cage | Der Käfig
Dinner. Father and Mother are eating when the son shows up, carrying an injured dove in his arms. “What is that?“ asks the father. “What does it look like?” replies the son. The mother has a look at the dove and continues doing what she is doing. “I want the dove to stay”, says the son. “Impossible”, says the father. “I want the dove to stay and I want a cage for the dove”, insists the son. “Who will pay for that?” asks the father. “You”, says the son. The mother doesn’t say a word.
Later on father and mother meet in the bedroom.
