This is a shortened featurette version of the full length mini documentary (30 min) available at The Chisomo Idea's website.

In the summer of 2007, a group of friends from California took a venture trip to Malawi, Africa.  The trip was masterminded by a Californian soccer player, Noel Musicha, who was born and raised in the privileged parts of the country [Malawi].  “DON’T WRITE ME OFF” is the Channel O style documentation of Noel’s story colliding with the story of a young aspiring soccer player [Humphrey Mahowa] who  grew up in a less-privileged part of the country.  The story unfolds in the township of Chinsapo, the outskirts of the capital, Lilongwe, and presents a unique perspective of Africa through the eyes of an African.
