Synopsis

Dramatisation of the 1962 Cuban missile crisis which follows the efforts of US President John F. Kennedy (Bruce Greenwood), his brother Bobby (Steven Culp), and others high up in the White House, to avert a nuclear confrontation with the Soviet Union. Focusing on events as seen through the eyes of trusted presidential aide Kenneth P. O'Donnell (Kevin Costner), Roger Donaldson's film traces the events which lead to the crisis, as well as the deals and bargaining which brought about its resolution, and shows how close the world really came to nuclear catastophe.
