Synopsis: Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror (Henry Fonda) casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy's fate.

CHARACTERS:

FOREMAN:
A small, petty man who is impressed with the authority he has and handles himself quite

formally. Not overly bright, but dogged.

JUROR NO. 2:
A meek, hesitant man who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of his own. Easily swayed

and usually adopts the opinion of the last person to whom he has spoken.

JUROR NO. 3:
A very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated man within whom can be detected a streak

of sadism. He is a humorless man who is intolerant of opinions other than his own and accustomed to forcing

his wishes and views upon others.

JUROR NO. 4:
Seems to be a man of wealth and position. He is a practiced speaker who presents himself well

at all times. He seems to feel a little bit above the rest of the jurors. His only concern is with the facts in this

case, and he is appalled at the behavior of the others.

JUROR NO. 5:
A naive, very frightened young man who takes his obligations in this case very seriously but,

who finds it difficult to speak up when his elders have the floor.

JUROR NO. 6:
An honest but dull-witted man who comes upon his decisions slowly and carefully. A man who

finds it difficult to create positive opinions, but who must listen to and digest and accept those opinions offered

by others which appeal to him most.

JUROR NO. 7:
A loud, flashy-handed salesman type who has more important things to do than to sit on a jury.

He is quick to show temper, quick to form opinions on things about which he knows nothing. Is a bully and, of

course, a coward.
