Russia (thus, all subtitled). Opening as 12 jurors are set to decide the fate of a Chechen teenager who is accused of murdering his Russian Army officer foster dad, who took the teenager to live with him in Moscow during the Chechen War after the boy lost both his parents. The twelve men are led to a neighboring middle school gym-like area to deliberate (the court house is being remodeled), and while the initial vote of 11 guilty to 1 not-guilty, they start talking (despite several having plans and were hoping to get out of town early for them). As the deliberations unfold, the vote begins to tilt toward a not-guilty, particularly as they start to delve into the case (one juror did his own sleuthing) and finding the unique nature of the knife/murder weapon is a common flea market item, the only witness in an otherwise vacant apartment building is too slow at walking to have witnessed anything, and the nature of the deadly cuts is not consistent with the prosecution's story. The theory they develop that evil developers, building a multi-million apartment complex next door and needing the last three residents out, the murder of the stubborn old Army officer, framing the foster son, compelled the witness/last resident to leave... and construction began again on the final wing (after bulldozing the murder site building). They ultimately vote unanimously not-guilty, and the foreman meets with the boy to help solve the murder, asking him to think of him as an uncle of sorts. Moving film reel
