Jakob the Liar
Lie number 57: tell everybody that I have a portable radio!
Set in a Polish Jewish ghetto towards the end of World War II. A pancake vendor accidentally hears a forbidden radio broadcast. At first he tries to keep it to himself, but is then forced to use the news to help save a friend's life and give him hope.
Unfortunately, his plan backfires when his friend goes about telling everybody that Jakob has a radio, a possession severly restricted by the Nazis. Even though Jakob tried, nobody seemed to believe that he did not own a radio. He then starts telling people little white lies to calm their fears and to give them hope.
