Looking for a copy of this movie to buy.
3 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always been a big Martin Sheen fan, & respect his political views. He would have made a great REAL President. I first saw this movie when I met the Producer, through his daughter, & his wife, in Anchorage, Alaska in 1986. I think this was a movie to be watched,to inform laymen of the possible out come of nuclear testing. I also love the religious note. I thought it was a real message, & I thought the message should be out there for everyone to know the possibilities. I would like to buy a copy of this movie for my collection. If anyone has a copy, Please let me know.
