Out of State
In Out of State, two native Hawaiians sent thousands of miles away to a private prison in the desert find a community of other native Hawaiians and discover indigenous traditions from a fellow inmate serving a life sentence. After finishing their terms and returning to Hawai'i, the men both find life on the outside a struggle and wonder if it’s possible to ever go home again.
- I never knew one ounce of Hawaiian
before I even came jail.
- The more I understood our culture,
the more I understood myself.
- I didn't know who I was.
Where'd I come from?
- I've been waiting all this time, I wanna come home.
But right now, prison is home, yeah?
- I came out on my own and I always messed up
because it's a lot better when you try things on your own.
- I've been locked up 15 years, so now,
out here, how do I change?
