Storyline

K-11 follows Raymond Saxx Jr. (Goran Visnjic), a powerful record producer who wakes from a drug-induced blackout to find himself locked up and classified "K-11." Plunged into a nightmarish world ruled by a transsexual diva named Mousey (Kate del Castillo), Raymond is truly a fish out of water.

Complicating matters are a troubled young transgender named Butterfly (Portia Doubleday), a predatory child molester (Tommy 'Tiny' Lister) and the ruthless Sheriff's Deputy, Lt. Johnson (D.B. Sweeney).

Ray's struggle to contact the outside world and regain his freedom seems impossible, but he must learn to navigate this new power structure if he is ever going survive and be in control of his life again.

Trivia

2013 Guide Analysis: "Kristen Stewart's mother Jules, a script supervisor for more than two decades, makes her directorial debut on this film which takes the "Caged Heat" format and gives it a gender and sexuality twist. Described as unabashedly trashy and deranged, reviews from the Turin Film Festival in November painted it as a project that would make John Waters proud. However, they also say Stewart doesn't reign it in enough, meaning even the campy appeal wears out its welcome.

Goran Visnjic plays a wealthy record producer who wakes from a drug-induced blackout to find himself locked up in K-11, the wing of L.A. County Jail reserved for gay and transgendered prisoners. He's stuck in a prison environment run by a brutal Mexican transsexual diva named Mousey (Kate del Castillo). With no way to contact the outside world, he begins formulating plans to turn the tables on the predatory inmates who have control.

Joining Visnjic are Portia Doubleday as a troubled young transgender named Butterfly, Tommy 'Tiny' Lister as a predatory child molester, and D.B. Sweeney as a twisted and sadistic deputy. While Waters always played his films for laughs, this one does not - including the brutal scenes of prison rape and murder. It's a film designed only for a very limited audience, but it's one that could amass a cult following down the road. Oh, and K-Stew cameos as a voice at the end of a phone line."
