THE JURY, conveys the story of Tess Butler's short lifetime of battling opiate addiction and burning bridges.Tess Butler is dead, now it is up to seven people from her life to come together and decide whether or not she's worth saving. Trapped in a seemingly normal jury deliberation room, Tess can only bear witness as the jurors reconstruct her life, uncovering secrets, confronting hard truths, and slowly reaching a consensus. Is this the end for Tess Butler, or is there yet a part of her that deserves redemption?
