Aside from being the mother of a famous Twilight actress, Jules Stewart is probably best known, at least around film sets in Hollywood, as a veteran script supervisor. Now, after working behind the scenes for more than two decades, she takes a step behind the camera, making her directorial debut with the eccentric prison thriller "K-11," premiering in theaters and On-Demand next Friday, March 15th.
The indie feature sees ER's Goran Visnjic as a substance-abusing record executive who gets busted for drug possession, and wakes up from his all-night bender to find himself locked up inside a unique section of the Los Angeles County Jail, where a menacing transsexual named Mousey (played by Mexican soap actress, Kate del Castillo) controls the territory with an iron fist. Watch the trailer above.
Like Alice in a brutally violent Wonderland, music executive Ray Saxx, Jr. is trapped in K-11, a very unique part of the Los Angeles County Prison System. He was out cold when he arrived and he has no idea how he got there -- all he knows is he needs to get the hell out ... alive and intact. To do that Ray must navigate through a maze of drug addled-transvestite-criminal politics with obstacles at every turn. Insane cellmates, corrupt guards and his own issues are just a few of what he's dealing with while he pieces together his means of release from this dark and dangerous rabbit hole, K-11.
