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.

When the presidents chopper is about to crash the pilot radios "Mayday Marine One going down," but the wreckage on the ground says "Army". However, any helicopter that contains the president is referred to as "Marine One," regardless of the markings. The same is true for the term "Air Force One" regarding fixed wing aircraft. See more
