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.

"There was no need for the pilot of Air Force One to turn into the path of the pursuing plane. He could simply have pulled up and placed the airplane into a fatal stall (or done a nose-dive) and allowed the other crew to survive." No, were the pilot to do anything overt, he would have been forcibly removed from the cockpit and the copilot or any of several other qualified pilots aboard would have continued to avoid contact.
