Horten goes about his final work shifts and then enters into the uncertain world of retirement.

Dans les années cinquante, durant le boom industriel de l'après-guerre, un groupe d'observateurs suédois du Home Research visite un village norvégien en vue d'étudier la routine des hommes célibataires dans leur cuisine.

Schweden in den 50er Jahren. Die Technik soll Einzug in die privaten Haushalte halten. Um den Werbefeldzug für die moderne Küche einleiten zu können, werden zuvor vom schwedischen Forschungsinstitut für Heim und Haushalt eingehende Studien zum Verhalten der Hausfrau in ihrer Küche vorgenommen. Am Ende der Versuchsreihe steht fest: Um ihrer Familie jeden Tag das Essen servieren zu können, läuft die schwedische Hausfrau jedes Jahr eine Strecke, die der zwischen Schweden und dem Kongo gleicht. Wenn man die Küche jedoch nach einem bestimmten Muster anordnen würde, dann müsste sie nur noch bis nach Norditalien laufen, um allen Küchenpflichten nachzugehen. Von diesem Erfolg beflügelt, sucht das Institut nun nach einer neuen Herausforderung. Diesmal sollen verlässliche Daten über eine weitere Zielgruppe eingeholt werden: Den männlichen Junggesellen. Zu diesem Zweck werden 18 Beobachter in das kleine Dorf Landstad in Norwegen geschickt, um an freiwilligen Probanden deren Küchenroutine zu studieren

Vitenskapskvinnen Marie (Ane Dahl Torp) får i oppdrag å reise til Paris for å kontrollveie vår nasjonale kilo. I Paris møtes delegater fra hele verden på et seminar om kiloens framtid, og blant dem franske Pi. Sammen finner Marie og Pi ut at de gamle kroppsmålene som fot, tomme og favn fortsatt har gyldighet, og det oppstår gryende kjærlighet.
