For thirteen days in October 1962, the United States risked war with the Soviet Union when a U-2 spy plane discovered nuclear missiles in Cuba. This film dramatizes those events, focusing on the efforts of President Kennedy and his military and political advisors to avoid war and to remove the weapons.
