Canadian William Sampson was a law-abiding citizen who moved to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to offer his expertise as a business consultant. Then, in December 2000, he and several of his colleagues were suddenly arrested and charged for a violent terrorist bombing they did not commit. Despite his plea of innocence and no evidence of guilt, Sampson was imprisoned and repeatedly tortured for almost three years until his captors got what they wanted from him: a confession. With news of his shocking confession heard around the world, Sampson was sentenced to death. Receiving no help from his government, it appeared to be only a matter of time before another innocent man would die.
Narrated by Martin Sheen and directed by Academy Award -nominated filmmaker David Paperny, Confessions of an Innocent Man is a raw and important experience for an age when war and terror are dividing the world.
