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.

User Reviews

Fantastic performances, storytelling and pace! A second season would be great!
21 March 2020 | by maria-ricci-1983See all my reviews

I found this series fascinating. The story is delivered in different time frames, so we follow the case in court while some flashbacks drop hints or revelations about what really happened.

There is thrill and suspense until the very end, and the last episode is really nerve wrecking and emotionally painful. I will not include spoilers here, but the ending leaves much room for reflection about guilt, justice, truth and retribution.

Every single performance here is outstanding, and the storytelling proceeds at a superb pace, with a remarkable balance between what is revealed and what is withheld.

The story goes beyond the case and extends to the transformative effects of the procedure in the lives of the jurors and their families, as well as the impact their private experiences have in the way they finally will vote for or against absolution.

If a second season of the story comes out with a follow up of the eventsl, I will be the first to watch it! Strongly recommended show for genre lovers!
