The late Ingvard Kamprad is the founder and maker of IKEA, the world’s largest furniture retailer. In this close and personal portrait Ingvar meets with director and comedian Felix Herngren out on his country estate in Älmhult, Småland. The same place where it all began in 1943. During a couple of days Felix and Ingvar gets personal and talks about Ingvar’s upbringing and family, business making, his view on aging and of course his life’s work IKEA. There will be revelations, tears and a great deal of humor in this intimate portrait of the man that created an empire.
