SummaryThe combatants: a dozen strangers. The stakes: life and death. Screen legends Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott head an all-star cast in this taut, emotionally charged courtroom drama that is as powerful as the original was when it first burst upon the screen. A young man stands accused of fatally stabbing his father, and his fate now lies in the hands of twelve men from all walks of life, each with his own agenda, fears, and personal demons. Fortunately, this is an open-and-shut case. Or is it? As the evidence is painstakingly scrutinized, tensions mount and tempers rise, and the twelve jurors are forced to confront their secret frailties and bitter prejudices in an unrelenting struggle for the truth.
