    A chilling nightmare plays out at a Titan II missile complex in Arkansas in September, 1980. A worker accidentally drops a socket, puncturing the fuel tank of an intercontinental ballistic missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead in our arsenal, an incident which ignites a series of feverish efforts to avoid a deadly disaster. In this documentary thriller, filmmaker Robert Kenner (Food Inc.) examines how human error caused a devastating explosion and links mutually assured destruction to self-annihilation.
