A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men. How they reach their final verdict will keep you on the edge of your seat. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says one juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a person; of a man or woman we have not known before."
