Reginald Rose’s timeless American classic finds twelve strangers sequestered in the jurors’ room as they review and discuss the evidence from a murder trial in which a young man has been accused of killing his own father. With the boy’s life at stake, the jury’s charge is not as simple as it first seems. Emotions run high as the jury forman seeks true justice in the unanimous decision needed.
