Based on the bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove, this warmhearted comedy/drama finds Britt-Marie, age 63, suddenly re-considering her purpose and habits after leaving her husband of 40 years. Accepting a supremely unglamorous job at a ramshackle rec center in the backwater town of Borg, she finds herself taking an interest in the daily routines of the town's oddball denizens - who all seem perfectly content to be stuck in their ways. Determined not to do the same, she takes on the impossible task of coaching the children's soccer team.
