As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and the irresponsibility of society, Oskar rejects both, and, on his third birthday, refuses to grow.

But when she learns that he's sterile, she's faced with the impossible choice: produce him an heir or die!"--Conteneur

Dantzig, 1924. Le petit Oscar, enfant surdoué, voit le jour. Dès sa naissance, il trouve en face de lui deux pères possibles : l'un, Alfred, un allemand, époux légitime de sa mère, l'autre, Jan, un polonais, l'amant de celle-ci. Ne voulant pas accéder au monde des adultes, qui le répugne, Oscar décide de mettre fin à sa croissance. Tapi dans son enfance comme dans une cachette, une armure inviolable, Oscar devient un témoin attentif et railleur de tout ce qui se passe autour de lui. A ras du sol, il commente et ponctue de ses roulements de tambour une histoire qui est celle de sa famille, de sa ville natale et celle aussi de ce voisin redoutable qui terrifie et fascine ses compatriotes: le grand Reich allemand...
