The plot of film revolves around the murder trial of a Latino boy who is accused of killing his father. The conviction of the boy would mean a death sentence and his destiny lies in the hands of twelve male jurors of ranging personalities. The case seems open and shut with a murder weapon and several witnesses to place the boy at the scene of the crime. For eleven of the jurors the decision is apparent that the boy is guilty but for one juror, Mr. Davis (Henry Fonda), the boy’s life should entail some discussion to eliminate any reasonable doubt. As the film progresses the personalities of the jurors become apparent and many underlying issues influence the guilty decision chosen by the majority of the jurors.
