Twelve ordinary people are called for jury duty for a murder case as traumatizing as it is controversial: the respected headmistress Fri Palmers stands accused of two murders, one of whom is her own child. Gradually, as the trial gains momentum, it is not only Fri's fate that hangs in the balance, but also the lives of the jury members that are shaken to the core. Each jury member reacts based on his or her own personal scars and life experience. It is up to them to decide on the guilt or the innocence of this broken woman on trial.
First I thought what an asinine judicial system for Belgium, people being charged & convicted for crimes by prosecutors using the stupidest reason for guilt. But it happens everyday in the USA; innocent people are convicted and sent to prison. How do we want to be perceived as individuals is asked numerous ways throughout the series. I believe the ending is worth the wait!
