This documentary views the climax of the Cold War through the lens of the television network that produced America’s most watched made-for-TV-movie, THE DAY AFTER (1983). With irreverent humor and sobering apocalyptic vision, it reveals how a commercial broadcaster seized a moment of unprecedented television viewership, made an emotional connection with an audience, and forced an urgent conversation with the US President on his policy towards nuclear proliferation.
