59-year-old Ove is the townhouse neighborhood’s sullen prefect. He is recently widowed and suicidal from the impact. One day, Parvaneh and her family move into the house across the street. When they later knock down Ove’s mailbox with their car, this becomes the prelude to an unexpected friendship and a turnaround in the world-weary man’s life.
