12 angry men

A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father.
 "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken
into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of
the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts.  “This is a
remarkable thing about democracy,” says the foreign-born juror, “that
we are notified by mail to come down to the place — and decide on the
guilt or innocence of a man; of a man we have not known before.  We
have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict.  We should not make it a
personal thing.”  But personal it does become, with each juror revealing
his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the
murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes!  
Tempers get short, arguments grow heated, and the jurors become 12 angry men.
