Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish Jew, was a celebrated composer and pianist who played the last live music heard
over Polish radio airwaves before Nazi artillery hit. During the brutal occupation, he eluded deportation and
remained in the devastated Warsaw Ghetto. There, he struggled to stay alive even when cast away from those he
loved. He would eventually reclaim his artistic gifts, and confront his fears, with aid from the unlikeliest
source -- a German officer who helped him hide in the final days of the war.
Based on the autobiography of Wladyslaw Szpilman.
