It’s premeditated murder in the first degree and the sentence is death. The jury takes their first vote and it’s unanimous. Almost.
Juror #8 (Henry Fonda) is the sole dissenting voice. It’s not that he believes the kid did not do it; he’s just not sure. Over the next 90 real-time minutes, #8 will test his doubts against the others, to understand whether or not those doubts are reasonable.
