"Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and the irresponsibility of society, Oskar rejects both, and, on his third birthday, refuses to grow. Caught in a baffling state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out at all he surveys with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding, chaotic world marches onward to the madness and folly of World War II." -- Container.

Oscar est né à Dantzig au début des années 30, officiellement fils d'un épicier allemand mais possiblement le rejeton d'un cousin polonais de sa mère, Bronski. À 3 ans, dégoûté par l'immoralité et la vulgarité des adultes, il décide de ne plus grandir. Muet de surcroît, il manifeste sa désapprobation par des cris pouvant briser le verre et par de continuels battements sur un tambour jouet. Il traverse ainsi divers évènements historiques tels montée du nazisme, invasion de la Pologne et défaite des Allemands.
