Ove is the quintessential grumpy old man next door, a curmudgeon with staunch principles and a short fuse. Still grieving his late wife, Ove has nearly given up on life when a boisterous young family moves in next door, accidentally flattening his mailbox, and upending his ordered, solitary world in the process. As an unlikely friendship with his new Iranian-Swedish neighbor begins to form, what emerges is an unexpected, funny and heartwarming tale of human connection.
