Synopsis

The little house in Ljunglyckorna, Österlen fits Agnes and Adolf perfectly. The retirees never enjoyed their time in the flat in town and they have moved to the countryside again. Agnes can’t wait to get her fingers dirty in the garden and she is going to get a cat for sure. Adolf’s plan is more downbeat – he does not understand the fuss and why do they need that damn cat at all? But he soon gets something else to think about, because in the house next door, things are happening!

The neighbouring couple, Ruth and Herman, become their friends in a flash and the gentlemen get the habit of disappearing to Herman’s shed in the evening. There are strong drinks and pictures of scantily clad ladies.

It is wholly different story at Lutz’s place, the neighbour on the other side. From his place, there is constant loud noises and they all wonder what it is he’s building. But Lutz keeps it under wraps and lets the other guess. Is it Frankstein’s monster hiding under the cover, Adolf worries.

Yes, strange things are happening in the village. People are whispering about the place being haunted and someone is driving around in an old hearse with a flag flying from the antenna. Ljunglyckorna is never going to be the same again.
