Summary
A jury of white men is ready to pass judgment on a Puerto Rican teenager charged with murdering his father. However, one juror forces the others to consider whether the evidence--or the jurors' own prejudices--influences their deliberations. The story plays out in real time over ninety minutes in one sweltering room
