A sad subject matter but a touching and moving story.

Good story of hope

"Jakob" (Robin Williams) is a Jew living in a Nazi-occupied Polish ghetto where the residents have lost all hope. One night, he is ordered to report to the officer in charge after being caught outside, allegedly after curfew. While he was in the office, waiting to be repremanded, he overhears a radio report about the advancing Russian troops.

When he returns to the neighborhood, he informs his friends what he had heard. However, as the news spread, his story transformed into something else. People began to believe he had a radio hidden in his home as his story began traveling through the grapevine.

This is simply a story of hope for those oppressed such as the Jews during the Nazi occupation so many decades ago. And it is done very well.

Let me say that this movie is not a happy ...
