The writer Jonas Jonasson, of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.tells a story about this film making sure Allan Karlssson ex-wife will never be able to meet their son that is what this man is. After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested. So he escapes and emabarks on an unexpected journey with cash in his suitcase in hiring unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant). So why an Elephant?
