Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife’s grave, Ove has given up on life.
Enter a boisterous young family next door who accidentally earn his special brand of ire. Will one drive the other out of town or will an unlikely friendship form as we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks?
What emerges is a heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when its shared.
