Synopsis:
Facing starvation or deportation to the Nazi death camps, the residents of a Polish ghetto during World War II live without hope until Jacob begins to pass on good, though mostly false, news. His gift for storytelling, however, cannot change the heartbreaking fate of his neighbors. A touching blend of humor and tragedy.
