The film follows the Jordanian under-17 women’s football team in their training for the U-17 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Jordan in 2016. The players come from various social and athletic backgrounds, yet they train passionately as a team. The biggest challenge is still lying ahead: they will face the best players in their league. »17« is a sensitive homage to the confidence and willpower of these girls in a very traditional country for a sport that is still a male domain.
