The jury is behaving strangely, and at  least one juroris convinced he's being watched. Soon  they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an  anonymousyoung woman suggests she is able to predict  the jurors' increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury  somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If  so, by whom?
