About the movie

A chilling nightmare plays out at a Titan II missile complex in Arkansas, 1980. A falling socket punctures the fuel tank of missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead ever built by the US, an incident that ignites a series of feverish efforts to avoid a deadly disaster. Based on the critically acclaimed book by Eric Schlosser, this film is a minute-by-minute account of this long-hidden story. Putting a camera where there was no camera that night, this nonfiction thriller is brought to life with stunning original footage shot in a decommissioned Titan II missile silo. Featuring eyewitness accounts from the man who dropped the socket, to the man who designed the warhead, to the Secretary of Defense.
