Overview
The countdown has begun! Against the real-life backdrop of the US deployment of WMDs in Europe during the escalating cold war, this "dramatically involving [and] agonizingly graphic film" (The Hollywood Reporter) about nuclear holocaust detonated a direct hit into the heartland of America. Starring Jason Robards, JoBeth Williams, Steven Guttenberg, John Cullum and John Lithgow, this "controversial, potent drama" (Leonard Maltin) remains "one of the most talked-about programs in history" (Newsweek)!

When cold-war tensions reach the ultimate boiling point, the inhabitants of a small town in Kansas learn - along with the rest of America - that they have less than 30 minutes before 300 Soviet warheads begin to appear overhead! Can anyone survive this ultimate nightmare...or the nuclear winter that is sure to follow?
