Hollywood record producer Raymond Saxx (Goran Visnjic) passes out on drugs and alcohol and when he returns to reality he finds himself in a brutal world in which he feels he doesn’t belong. Saxx blacks out, is arrested for homicide and mistakenly placed in the Los Angeles County Jail in an area labeled K-11 which is set aside for homosexuals, sexual deviants and transgender inmates. When he realizes what has happened to him, Saxx cries out that he never killed anyone and that he should only be jailed for using drugs. He quickly discovers, however, that his pleas are useless and that it is nearly impossible to contact the world outside K-11. K-11 is ruled by transsexual Mousey (Kate Del Castillo), the self-titled Queen of the K-11 kingdom. Mousey tries to become Saxx’s trusted friend and protector from the evils that lurk around them daily. But it is also Mousey that informs Saxx to stop crying about his situation and learn how to survive in his new world because he is never going to return to his former life. Saxx’s new world is ruled by jail cell politics, brutality and fear. It includes a young, frightened transgender named Butterly (Portia Doubleday) and other inmates who are rapists and child molesters. It is not long before rape and murder invade Saxx’s new existence and involves the people he is closest to. The dangers Saxx encounters, though, don’t come solely from his fellow inmates. The K-11 staff, led by the troubled Sgt. Johnson (D.B. Sweeney), is just as corrupt. Johnson is after sex and drugs as much as the inmates and he is aided by a staff of rookie police officers who must serve four weeks in K-11 as sort of their initiation into the jail. K-11 is directed by Jules Stewart.
