Plot Summary:

The newly appointed President of the United States of America is trapped by severe weather, in a diner in a remote mid-western town. Whilst there he learns that Iraq has begun an invasion of Kuwait. The president threatens Iraq with a nuclear response and so sets in motion a series of events that could lead to the end of the world as we know it...

Comments:

A first rate drama that relies entirely on character development and tension building. At no point did special effects or stereotyped catch phrases come to play in this brilliantly acted film. Reminiscent of 'Fail Safe' in many ways. Check it out.

Special Effects:

None to speak of; and this is a good thing in this film.
