American planes are sent to deliver a nuclear attack on Moscow, but it’s a mistake due to an electrical malfunction. Can all-out war be averted?

A series of human and computer errors sends a squadron of American ‘Vindicator’ bombers to nuke Moscow. The President, in order to convince the Soviets that this is a mistake, orders the Strategic Air Command to help the Soviets stop them. 

During the Cold War U.S. bomber jets were equipped with fail-safe boxes that instruct pilots when and if to attack enemy targets.

Yet another masterpiece from Sidney Lumet.
