Per and Anders are two young men from a wealthy part of Oslo. When they move into a collective in a multicultural neighbourhood, they meet Nora whose Arab family wants to marry her off to a man she has never met before. Nora is torn between the desire for independence and the love of her family, and Per and Anders do their best to support her struggle with a culture they do not understand. NORWEGIAN SUMMER tells a story of friendship and being young in Oslo while offering a uniquely intimate perspective on arranged marriage.
