59 year old Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the curmudgeon on the block. Several years ago he was deposed as president of the residents’ association, but this does not prevent him from keeping a stern and watchful eye on the neighbourhood, when he is not visiting his wife’s grave and contemplating suicide. When pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her family moves into the house across the road and accidentally backs into Ove’s mailbox, it turns out to be the beginning of an unexpected friendship. A comedy drama about unexpected friendship, love and the importance of surrounding yourself with the proper tools.
