Cuban Missile Crisis: Three Men Go to War

Explore the inside story of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962, when the world teetered on the brink of nuclear holocaust. In the first major feature documentary on the subject, the film brings to life the three central characters — Kennedy, Castro, and Khrushchev — and explores how the world’s most powerful men fell into an abyss of their own making and outlines the courage and luck it took to climb out again.
