In the fifties Swedish scientists set out to study the ‘kitchen habits' of men who live alone in the Norwegian wilderness to learn how to build a more efficient living space. The researchers were on twenty-four-hour call, and sat in special strategically placed chairs in each kitchen. The absurd premise sets up as a comedy, but what viewers come out with is the great appreciation and the bonds the characters create.
