From a live groundbreaking television performance.
A computer malfunction triggers the transmission of nuclear-attack codes to a U.S. bomber squadron. The orders are irreversible, the primary target is Moscow - and ...展开the President, his advisors and military leaders race time to head off global catastrophe.

Recalling the adrenaline-rush days of early TV drama, Fail Safe was staged and telecast live on April 9, 2000 in black-and-white, establishing an immediate sense of history unfolding. Historic, too, is the cast: Richard Dreyfuss, Brian Dennehy, Noah Wyle, Don Cheadle, Harvey Keitel, Hank Azaria and Sam Elliott.
