Trust Me

The feature documentary Trust Me is about Waleed Ahmed. A charismatic young entrepreneur who started his own company at age 18, he emerged as a unique talent. Referred to in the media as “Norway’s Mark Zuckerberg”, he quickly gained access to politicians, diplomats, and royalty. How did this short-lived career with grandiose business deals in America lead to an arrest by the FBI and an 11-year sentence for international fraud. Trust Me is a youth portrait that depicts a larger narrative of belonging, identity, fraud, and dreams.
