The Screen Guide

Twelve ordinary people are selected for jury duty in a murder trial as traumatising as it is controversial, in which a woman stands accused of killing her sister’s child. Behind the fa̧cade of their anonymity, these twelve ordinary people bring with them their own histories. Lives that are as complex as the trial, full of fractured dreams, shameful secrets, hope, fears, personal trauma and prejudice. Through the multiple lenses of these jurors, we see the fragility and imbalances of the law, and the chaotic and flawed way we attempt to determine justice in our society.
