A Hawaiian police officer is called in on his day off to evict protesting compatriots from a settlement deemed “illegal” by the state. He’s forced to choose between supporting his family, upholding the law and doing what is morally right. The timeless, black-and-white film reminds us of the issues Hawaiians have faced for decades, such as homelessness, poverty and continued evictions, which have only worsened due to complex, systematic oppression.
