Twelve jurors from various walks of life and of different social status are deciding on the fate of a Chechen teenager charged with the first degree murder of his step father, a former officer of Spetsnaz. Every character bears some kind of a grudge or pain, stemming from a past unfairness, of which they, a relative, or friend were victim. We discover that law cannot exist in our country outside the context of emotion. Yet one question still remains: what is freedom? For the boy, for the jurors, for everybody living in this country.
