A dramatic portrait of Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro at the brink of nuclear war.

"Nuclear catastrophe was hanging by a thread…and we weren’t counting days or hours, but minutes."—Anatoly Gribkov, Soviet Chief of Army Operations. Highlighting the interplay between the three iconic men at the center of the Cuban Missile Crisis—Nikita Khrushchev, John F. Kennedy, and Fidel Castro—this cinematic documentary combines interviews with historians, witnesses, and participants; audio clips from Kennedy, McNamara, and other principals; and live footage to re-create the tension and magnitude of the series of events that unfolded over 13 days in October 1962 and almost brought on a nuclear holocaust.
