How does a man show ultimate loyalty to his family? Shot Caller explores this question through the lens of a middle-class man thrust into the extreme violence of the racially charged American prison gang world.

Jacob, our protagonist, leads the perfect middle class existence in California: a beautiful wife, a young son, a high-flying job. When he kills his friend in a drunk driving accident, he is thrown into prison and must align himself with a white skinhead gang, loosely modeled after the real life Aryan Brotherhood.
