17 follows the journey of Abdi, a Norwegian-Somali teenager living a typical life for his age: hanging out with friends, engaging in flirtations, and embracing the present moment. Abdi is fiercely loyal to his companions, a trait that has recently plunged him into various predicaments.
However, Abdi's life takes a transformative turn when his mother insists on a trip to Somalia to help him grow as an individual. Set against a ticking clock, the story unfolds over seventeen days, each episode representing a single day and commencing with a countdown of the remaining days.
The story of 17 delves into themes of identity and disconnection, as Abdi grapples with straddling two cultures. The series challenges preconceived notions by collaborating with the young men we've depicted, unraveling the narratives hidden behind societal stereotypes.
