The crew of a nuclear bomber attack the Soviet Union while the President of the United States tries desperately to regain control of his military after his helicopter crashes during a limited nuclear exchange in this film with a scenario similar to Fail-Safe (1964) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). Originally a made for cable movie, it concentrates on the relationship between a veteran pilot and his female co-pilot and the president's attempt to wrest control away from a war-mongering successor.

The last cold-war thriller is truly exciting and realistic. A launch by rouge Russian generals on their own territory triggers a nuclear exchange between the US and the (then) Soviet Union. The acting is top-notch by all involved. Highly recommended!
