    • Synopsis
    • The Grump is about a cantankerous old man whose old school stubbornness is put to the test when he is forced, due to a heavy fall, to move in to the city with his sharp business minded daughter in law. The two instantly butt heads, with hilarious consequences, and pretty soon the daughter wants him out. But there’s more to the old git than she originally thought. And 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 humorous and touching story about new discovery, tolerance and closing the generation gap.
