Happier times, Grump
Happier times, Grump is a very funny and very warm film on a very serious topic.
The Grump wants to die, because all the work is done; the meaning of life is gone. But just as his own coffin is being finished, a new life appears to the Grump. His grandchild Sofia, 17, is in trouble and needs the stubborness and wisdom of her grandfather and the warmth of the fireplace. The Grump gets a new meaning to his life – and a major secret. A stubborn old man and an young city girl get together and two halves grow up to be more than one whole human being.
