A middle-aged woman is suddenly forced to start her life over again and winds up accepting the last job she would ever have expected in the comedy-drama Britt-Marie Was Here, the second feature directed by actress Tuva Novotny and starring Pernilla August (The Best Intentions).

Based on the best-selling novel by Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove, the film follows housewife Britt-Marie (August), whose 40-year-old marriage has just ended because she learned her husband was unfaithful. Now, at 63 years old, she is faced with making a new start in life in the small Swedish town of Borg. Told she is nothing but a nagging, passive-aggressive aunt, the only job Britt-Marie can find is a true challenge for which she has had zero training: to coach the town’s youth soccer team. She knows nothing about soccer or coaching, and the team is the town’s pride and joy, but she takes the job anyway, beginning a journey filled with struggles, challenges, humor, warmth… and love.
