Director Penny Lane’s CONFESSIONS OF A GOOD SAMARITAN explores her highly personal and often misunderstood decision to become a “Good Samaritan” by donating one of her kidneys to an unknown stranger. What begins as a seemingly utilitarian decision turns into a funny and moving personal quest to understand the nature of altruism, unbound by personal relationships between individuals. 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?
