Award-winning TV drama. A TV reporter and cameraman are taken hostage on a tugboat while covering a strike. The demands of the hostage-takers are to collect all the nuclear detonators in the Charleston, South Carolina, area so they may be detonated at sea.
When this film was first broadcast, the network superimposed the word "dramatization" on the bottom of the screen every few minutes and ran disclaimers after every commercial break, to remind people it was only a movie. That didn't prevent people in Charleston panicking.
