The destruction sets off a race between American and Soviet politicians to prevent a nuclear holocaust.

When the president is believed to be killed in a helicopter crash, zealous advisers take over.

Quite an old movie and one that doesn't seem to garner much attention.  It's a cracking movie about WW3 actually happening and the strains and pressures placed on a bomber crew tasked with dropping nukes on Russia.  Well-acted, quite tense in parts and a few little unexpected twists in the tale.  Well worth a watch.
