Based on the play Twelve Angry Men, a 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. Each juror reveals his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short and arguments grow heated. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it adds up to an electrifying, edge-of-your-seat experience.

A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

Featuring more than 20 hit Queen songs including “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Killer Queen,” “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody to Love,” “We Are the Champions,” “Don't Stop Me Now,” and many more. The story follows two revolutionaries as they try to save rock 'n' roll in a post-apocalyptic world. A fist-pumping, foot-stomping musical anthem to individuality. (Theatrical Rights Worldwide)
