Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon — the kind of man who points at people he dislikes. He has staunch principles‚ strict routines‚ and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November day a chatty young couple with two young daughters moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove’s mailbox‚ it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale.
