TRAILER

SYNOPSIS

Oskar Matzerath narrates his own story, while being confined in a mental hospital. He decided to never grow up when he heard his father declare that he would become a grocer. Gifted with a piercing shriek that can shatter glass or be used as a weapon, Oskar declares himself to be one of those “clairaudient infants”, whose “spiritual development is complete at birth and only needs to affirm itself”.

​

He retains the stature of a child while living through the beginning of World War II, several love affairs, and the world of postwar Europe. Through all this, a toy tin drum, the first of which he received as a present on his third birthday, followed by many replacement drums each time he wears one out from over-vigorous drumming, remains his treasured possession; he is willing to commit violence to retain it.
