The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is
filing into the jury room to decide if a young Spanish-American
is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as
an open and shut case of murder soon becomes a mini-drama
of each of the jurors' prejudices and preconceptions about the
trial, the accused, and each other. Based on the play, all of
the action takes place on the stage of the jury room.
