Near the end of the Cold War, human error nearly caused a nuclear warhead to explode in Arkansas. The event was kept secret until only recently and, if the warhead had combusted, its power would have been three times that of every bomb dropped in WWII combined. This retelling of the chilling and Dr. Strangelovian nightmare is directed by Robert Kenner (Food, Inc., Merchants of Doubt) and based on a critically-acclaimed book by Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation). Command and Control is a minute-by-minute account of this long-hidden story, much of it based on recently declassified documents that expose other freak accidents and near-misses.
