A live criminal justice case based on a Joint Enterprise crime committed by a teenager, with all parts played by teenagers. The first prosecution witness, victim Farley Joseph takes to the stand to testify and is questioned by the prosecution and cross examined by the defence, using flashbacks to the dramatic reconstruction of the crime. This is interspersed with mentoring sessions with the defence and prosecution barristers and their teams of young people, and expert interviews with barristers, to show how they prepared for the questioning and cross examination of prosecution witnesses.
