Confessions of a Good Samaritan Confessions of a Good Samaritan

Is there a biological benefit
to being a good person?

Director Penny Lanes decision to become a good Samaritan by giving one of her kidneys to a stranger turns into a funny and moving personal quest to understand the nature of altruism. Confessions of a Good Samaritan (currently in production) 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?
