El filme arranca en el año 1927, en la ciudad de Danzig. Allí, el pequeño e inteligentísimo Oskar Matzerath va a cumplir tres años y ese mismo día decide que no crecerá más, como protesta contra un mundo que no le gusta, a partir de ese momento se dedicará a hacer sonar sin tregua su pequeño tambor de hojalata y a proferir estridentes y agudos gritos, capaces de hacer estallar los cristales, con el fin de que los adultos se percaten de que desperdician el mundo que están forjando. A lo largo de dos horas y media, Volker Schlondorff denuncia con mucho humor negro, la sinrazón, el fanatismo y la intolerancia que se adueñaron de su país durante casi dos décadas.
