Jules Stewart (mother of "Twilight" star Kristen) makes her directorial debut with prison drama "K-11," centering on one man's saga after landing in the transgender inmate unit of the L.A. County jail. The film hits theaters and VOD on March 15. Trailer below.

Goran Visnjic ("The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo") stars as a businessman whose recreational drug use leads him to incarceration. Once locked up, he must confront Mousy (Katie Del Castillo), a hostile transgendered inmate out for blood. Director Stewart's son Cameron makes his acting debut, while Kristen, per the press announcement, "makes a special contribution" to the film.

15 cities around the US are slated for a weeklong run of "K-11," including New York's Cinema Village and LA's Laemmle No-Ho 7. 

Stewart isn't the only mother to the stars making a directorial debut this season. Naomi Foner, Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal's mom, debuted "Very Good Girls" in January at Sundance, a coming-of-age drama starring Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen.
