The closing arguments have just been completed; a 19-year-old man is accused of fatally stabbing his father has his life in the hands of his twelve peers that file into the jury room. It seems like an open-and-shut case, but one juror does not believe so as they begin stating the facts.
“This is a remarkable thing about democracy” states the foreign-born juror, “that we are notified by mail to come down to this place – and decided on the guilt or innocence of a man; of a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing.”
But this plea becomes futile as each juror reveals their own true character as the evidence is reviewed and revealing a new murder threat. Tempers flare and the jury becomes 12 angry people!
