A young Puerto Rican is on trial for his father's murder and 11 of the 12 jurors have voted him guilty. The sole innocent vote comes from Juror No. 8, who persuades the others to reconsider, showing the motivations of each juror. Reginald Rose was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for a script based on his play, and the film received a nod for Best Picture.
