In Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II, poor Jewish cafe owner Jakob Heym (Oscar(r)-winner RobinWilliams Best Supporting Actor, 1997, Good Will Hunting) accidentally overhears a forbidden radio news bulletin signaling Soviet military success against German forces.

The Germans learn of the mythical radio and begin a search for the resistance hero who dares operate it.
