We learn that this is a murder case and that, if found guilty, the mandatory sentence for the accused is the death penalty. A boy is charged with killing his father. After these instructions, the jurors enter. The men file in and decide to take a short break before deliberating. They complain that the room is hot and without air-conditioning; even the fan doesn’t work. All the jurors presume the obvious guilt of the defendant, whom we learn has been accused of killing his father. Eventually, the twelve sit down and a vote is taken. All of the jurors vote “guilty,” except for the 8th Juror, who votes “not guilty,” which, due to the requirement of a unanimous jury, forces them to discuss the case. Different prejudices show up from different jurors. By the end of the trial all the jurors vote not guilty.
