Jakob the Liar
In Nazi-occupied Poland, poor Jewish café owner Jakob combats the overwhelming depression and suicide that pervades the ghetto, he invents fictitious news bulletins about Allied advances against the Nazis. These lies keep hope and humor alive among the ghetto inhabitants-spirits are lifted, hearts are refreshed and optimism is reborn.
