Debuted: February 17, 2002 (UK)
Director: Pete Travis
John Maher lay dead in the grass, the victim of 28 well-placed stab wounds. A stolen sword coated in blood lands near the 15-year-old schoolboy’s body. It’s clearly a case of unrestrained vengeance. John’s Sikh schoolmate, Duvinder Singh, hated him. Hated him enough to commit murder. A horrendous, premeditated murder in cold blood. Or so we’re told.
We’re also told this gentle, intelligent boy is incapable of killing. He’s innocent. Chilling suspense fills The Jury as the highly publicized trial pits Sikh and Anglo communities against each other. Logic against intuition. Pride against shame. The jurors must decide what side they’re on – both inside the courtroom, and outside.
