An irritable, elderly busybody (Rolf Lassgård) spends his days making his neighbors miserable with his grousing and demands for order, but his crabbiness hides a deep grief for his deceased wife, whom he hopes to soon join. His clumsy attempts at suicide bring him into contact with the Persian family next door, and his growing friendship with them helps him reconnect with life. Bahar Pars and Tobias Almborg co-star. Based on the best-selling novel by Swedish writer Fredrik Backman.
