The Man Who Saved The World
Few people know his name… yet hundreds of millions of people are alive because of him.
On September 26, 1983, the Soviet early warning satellite system reported that American missiles were heading their way. But Stanislov Petrov, the duty officer that night, correctly suspected that the system was malfunctioning and convinced his superiors to delay a counter attack until further confirmation, thus saving the world from nuclear Armageddon. This gripping true story of the man who single-handedly averted a nuclear world war mixes fact and fiction by intertwining historical re-enactments with real life footage of Petrov as he tries to get his life back on track.
Appearances By: Robert De Niro, Matt Damon, Walter Cronkite, Kevin Costner and many others.
