Confessions of a Good Samaritan
  • Director: Penny Lane
  • Producers: Gabriel Sedgwick
  • Screenwriters: Penny Lane

Director Penny Lane’s decision to become a “Good Samaritan” by giving one of her kidneys to a stranger—someone she's never met, and never will meet—launches her on a provocative, intimate, and unexpectedly funny quest to understand the nature of altruism. CONFESSIONS OF A GOOD SAMARITAN is a provocative inquiry into the science, history, and ethics of organ transplantation, asking an ancient question in a whole new way: who is your neighbor, and what do you owe them?
