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.

Final film to depict a fictional World War III prior to the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics aka the Soviet Union aka Russia). The Matte World Digital websites states: "By Dawn's Early Light
(1990), produced in the 1980's, was the last of the 'what if the weapons get loose' cold war suspense thrillers released before the fall of the Soviet Union." See more
During a scene aboard Air Force One, the clocks on the wall
(supposed to depict the times of different major cities around the world) all show vastly different times. Time zones by and large only differ on the hour, the few half-hour zones including Delhi and Newfoundland, so the minute hands on the clocks should at least mostly all have been in the same position, with only the hour hands being on different positions.
