Out of the Box explores the high cost of incarceration and prison recidivism, highlighting a successful model of judicial support in the Eastern District of Missouri. In 2014, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics reported a 73% reduction in re-arrests in this District which includes St. Louis. The film relies primarily on interviews with ex-offenders, parolees, judiciary and staff of the court. As America comes to grips with a profoundly broken criminal justice system that relies on historic levels of mass incarceration – Out of the Box explores a viable model for systemic reform.
