Announcing the acquisition, Wright stated: “The Breaking Glass team is a great fit for K-11 as they are uniquely positioned to market the film to both a wide audience and the several niche demographics that will love this film. We’re certain they will truly capitalize on its diverse market appeal.”
 
Added Wolff: “We are pleased to be distributing the very talented Jules Stewart’s first film. K-11 is very unique to say the least and surely will raise a few eyebrows. The acting is dead on, the story is gripping, and we are gunning for multiple award nominations.”

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, so he must learn to navigate this new power structure if he is ever going survive and regain control of his life.
