Question Gear Shifter moves in all directions. Mechanic says I "broke a cable". Is this true?

My gear shifter 'broke' recently, and it got stuck in a gear. The actual shifter can move in all directions, even a circular direction. I was told that what probably happened was a pin came lose or broke, so my shifter is no longer hooked up to my transmission. I took it in to a mechanic and he said I broke a cable and it will cost $400 to fix, if I am lucky. I have a hard time believing such a simple thing could cost so much, or that there is even a cable involved with switching gears. Any truth to this?
