Product Description:

A dramatic re-creation of the events of October, 1962 which culminated in the Cuban Missile Crisis. This Golden Laurel award-winning dramatization is based on all available historical records.

Plot Synopsis:

This suspenseful drama explores one of the most frightening events of the 1960s -- the Cuban Missile crisis. The Cold War confrontation occurred in 1962, when the United States discovered that the USSR was secretly building missile-launching pads in Cuba. President John Fitzgerald ordered Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to remove the weapons already in place. He then put into effect a naval blockade on the island to make sure that no more missiles arrived on its shores.
The film shows how the U.S. leader frantically worked with his brother Robert and their staff to put an end to the situation.
