About the show

Twelve jurors are brought together to decide a young man’s fate. Eleven of them agree but there is one lone dissenter, who throws the courtroom into a whirlwind of emotions. More…

A young delinquent awaits sentencing for the manslaughter of his aggressive father. Twelve jurors are corralled in a room for their deliberations in a murder trial. One juror feels that there is a 'reasonable doubt' — to the frustration of his 11 colleagues — thereby preventing a quick verdict. During the heated debate, the hidden preconceptions and assumptions of the jurors are revealed. When faced with playing the hangman, each juror is forced to face himself.
