During the Cold War, American and Soviet bombers used to regularly patrol near enemy airspace. In the event that major cities were destroyed in a surprise nuclear attack, the bombers and their nuclear payloads were the assurance that the enemy would be completely destroyed. In this thriller, just such a scenario plays out. Thinking a nuclear war has begun, American bombers are set out with orders to destroy that cannot be reversed. When they realize the costly mistake that has occurred, American and Soviet leaders are forced to diplomatically discuss how to remedy the nail-biting situation.
