The Grump The Grump

The Grump is a man from the past. A man who knows that everything used to be so much better in the old days. Pretty much everything that’s been done after 1953 has always managed to ruin the Grump’s day. A fall at home sends him for medical appointments in Helsinki and a stay with his son’s family. The Grump’s daughter-in-law is a career woman, not keen to spend time with him. They instantly butt heads, with hilarious consequences, and pretty soon she wants him out. There's more to the old git than she originally thought. Likewise, he has a thing or two to learn from this modern woman. So what starts out as a tragicomic disaster turns out to be a touching story about new discovery, tolerance and closing the generation gap.
