Summary
Widescreen. Takes a fictitious crime and builds from it a gripping courtroom drama. The trial takes us into the brains of the major participants-defendant, witnesses, jurors, judge-while Alan Alda visits the laboratories of some dozen neuroscientists exploring how brains work when they become entangled with the law. The research raises the controversial question: How does our ability to peer into people's minds and decode their thoughts and feelings affect trials like the one we are watching in the future?
