Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Ulf Malmros directs this warm comedy-drama about four loners learning to love again. A pair of young orphans, Marten (Anastasios Soulis) and Annika (Rebecka Scheja journey to a small village during the summer of 1958 to stay with crusty middle-aged Yngve (Kjell Bergqvist), who works both as a farmer and an undertaker. Though gruff and often grumpy, the two kids soon realize that Yngve still has a lot of love to give, and they set out to help him meet a woman. They happen upon Miss Svanstrom (Cecilia Nilsson), and before long Yngve and Miss Svanstrom are an item. That is, until the richest man in the village tries to foil their newfound happiness.
