Skeem Saam is a blend of stories about the journey to manhood.
The local drama series examines the plight of today’s male children and the tough challenges they face transitioning into manhood.
The underlying premise for the series is that real men are made, not born.
Teenage boys naturally challenge themselves. They wish to find out what their limits are. Will they survive to see their 21st birthday? Who will grow into a healthy, responsible man? What are the responsibilities of close relations and neighbours towards shaping the next generation of men?
The series takes a close look at the lives of three teenage boys and their families. It examines how these boys deal with issues of masculinity, gender relations, relationships; self esteem, etc.
