Voker Schloendoff's "Tin Drum", based on Guenter Grass' acclaimed novel, tells the story of Oskar Matzerath, born in Danzig in 1924 with an intellect far beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and the irresponsibility of society. Oskar rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older and expresses his view of the world with piercing screams and frantic pounding on his tin drum as the world moves toward World War II.
