Love and war rage in a Texas small claims court. As love blooms between Judge Harriet Kerr and Constable Jay Weiss behind closed chamber doors, war erupts in the jury room as six jurors square off over a case involving former lovers with heavy grudges. The result is a spirited, riotous debate on man's inhumanity to woman and vice versa - a veritable battle of the sexes with a Texas twang. Here is a lighthearted, yet probing, look at the chasm between the sexes and the bridges built to overcome it. Audiences love to take sides and, just like the ladies and gentlemen of the jury, they will find ample opportunity here (along with a little common ground along the way).
