12 Angry Men

Following the murder trial involving a young slum kid who has been accused of murdering his father with a switch-knife, the 12 jury men occupy the jury roomto reachtheir verdict. All but one man believe the boy to be guilty of the accused crimes, though juror 8 believes the evidence was brushed over to quickly and with all the little details left out. Over the next few hours a few other juror’s side with number 8 but they have to reach a clean verdict all in opposition of guilty or not. We explore the reasons behind each individual and why they believe the crime was or wasn’t committed by the son and how by if some miracle the evidence is wrong, they will be sending an innocent boy to the electric chair or letting a murderer go free.
