Florida Justice Transitions is home to 120 convicted sex offenders. Like in many other U.S. states, sex offenders are not allowed to live within 1000 feet of places frequented by children. Because of this, many sex offenders live under bridges or in woods – or in the trailer park Florida Justice Transitions – also known as Pervert Park.

The crimes committed by the residents range from simple misdemeanors to horrendous acts unbearable to contemplate. The characters in Pervert Park are all fighting their own very different battles and demons. In this film they tell us their stories as they have never told them before.

Florida Justice Transitions is a private institution, founded by a mother of a convicted sex offender who couldn’t find a place to live after his release. The name is meant to signal a hope for justice and the belief that people can change. But can we talk about justice when we’re dealing with the sexual abuse of children and minors? Or have the offenders forfeited this right forever by doing what they did?

Pervert Park follows the everyday lives of the sex offenders in the park as they struggle to reintegrate into society. It tries to understand the offenders and how to end the circle of sex crimes committed and lives destroyed.
