In Southern California, a DUI sends successful businessman Jacob Harlon down the rabbit hold of the American prison system where he is transformed into a stoic, ruthless gangster called "Money." 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. And upon his release, chased by the law enforcement, threatened by his incarcerated "protectors," Money must orchestrate one last dangerous crime.
