Saving DarwinABOUT TWELVE ANGRY JURORS
Based on the Emmy award-winning television movie by Reginald Rose Adapted by Sherman Sergel

A diverse group of 12 strangers must decide the fate of an inner-city teen on trial for the murder of his abusive father. Locked in a jury room, tempers flare and frustration abounds as their own prejudices, fears, and cultural biases boil to the surface in what was expected to be an open-and-shut case. The American judicial system is as much on trial as the defendant when these 12 jurors dramatically wrestle with their civic duty.
