Story

The small boy Oskar Matzerath decides at his third birthday not to grow up as he sees the madness of the world around him at the eve of World War II. With his tin drum and his abnormal screaming talent he protest against the middle-class mentality of his family and neighborhood, which stand for all passive people in Nazi Germany at that time. Nobody listens to him, so the catastrophe goes on...
