A jury must decide whether a 19-year-old man is guilty of murder. As 11 jurors try their best to convince one dissenter to vote guilty, too, the evidence is re-examined and everyone is forced to question if some measure of “reasonable doubt” exists. This heightened courtroom thriller, inspired by the 1957 film Twelve Angry Men, will be set in the present day with a diverse cast, and it will put you on the edge of your seat while exploring what it means to live in a democracy.
