Confessions of a Good Samaritan

Milwaukee Film Festival

When MFF alum director Penny Lane (NUTS!, HAIL SATAN) decides to become a “Good Samaritan” by giving one of her kidneys to a stranger, she launches on an unexpectedly funny, intimate, and provocative documentary quest to understand why everyone seems to think she’s crazy. With a humor and whimsy Lane fans will recognize, the film tackles large questions of altruism and humanity artfully.
