Oskar is a painfully precocious child (doctors thought he might have Aspergers).  His oddball behavior was encouraged by his father Thomas who sent his son on adventures across New York City to find certain objects and learn about the city’s “secret history”.  Thomas dies in the attack on the World Trade Center, but Oskar is desperate to keep the memory of his father alive.
