In Sweden, Ove is a grumpy old man known as the “bitter neighbor from hell”. He has precise principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. A young family with two chatty daughters moves in next door and their U-Haul runs over his mailbox. Ove’s solitary world turns upside down. Unruly cats, unexpected friendship, and the unveiling of Ove’s story of love and loss, joy and sorrow change the local resident’s association and community forever. In this comical and heartwarming story, we embrace the complexities of human nature with Ove through both tears and laughter – as he grieves for his wife and, through a series of accidental relationships, learns to live again.
