In a legally plausible case, inspired by true events, an ambitious Assistant District Attorney prosecutes a wife and mother (Lucie Arnaz) for murder after her forty-seven-year-old husband dies of lung cancer, potentially caused by her second-hand smoke. The case is further complicated as the DA loops in the woman’s twenty-four-year-old son to testify against his mother. At first, the case appears a far reach, but, in homage to Twelve Angry Men, one juror's doubts and inspiration from her student (Elisabeth Moss) catapults the jury into an intriguing, emotional and complicated choice regarding addiction, loyalty and individual responsibility.
