Shot Caller


Shot Caller
After a drunk-driving conviction sends him down the rabbit hole of the American prison system, a successful businessman is transformed into Money, a stoic, ruthless prison gangster. As he navigates the brutality of his new home, adapting to its violent codes of ethics and rites of passage that will ensure his survival, he slowly loses his previous identity and his relationship to his former life, including his wife and son. The grip of his new family, the prison gang, extends beyond the prison walls. Upon his release, chased by the law enforcement, threatened by his incarcerated ’’protectors,’’ Money must orchestrate one last dangerous crime. All is not what it seems. The ruthless process of fulfilling his obligations also becomes his path to sacrifice, retribution and self-definition.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconThis adds up to a film that will have bits and pieces that will work for different audiences but as a whole, it's bound to leave pretty much everyone unsatisfied.
