Ove is a widower, recently downsized out of his longtime job and the grumpiest man on the block. Despite being removed as president of the condo association years ago, he couldn’t give a damn and still polices all neighborhood infractions with an iron fist. When pregnant Parvaneh and her family move into the house opposite Ove’s, she accidentally backs her car into Ove’s mailbox, beginning an unexpected friendship between the curmudgeon and his newest neighbors.
