A critical look at the proposed strategic Defence Intiative, featuring leading supporters and critics of the Star Wars Defence system. In a fast moving, visually exciting and informative presentation, the film explores the key questions about the Star Wars plan in sensible, clear language: Would a Star Wars defence make us more secure or less secure? Is a perfect defence against nuclear missiles possible? Would a less than perfect defence reduce the nuclear threat? What would the impact of Star Wars on the arms race and the economy? Are the alternatives to Stars Wars that could better reduce the danger of Nuclear war?
