‘Juror #2’, written by Jonathan Abrams, follows a member of the jury in a murder trial who suspects his involvement in the victim’s death, possibly caused by a vehicular accident. He faces a moral dilemma of whether to use this secret to influence the jury’s decision in his favor or to confess and face the justice system he is a part of.
