Synopsis: Not Rated. The Man Who Saved the World (Featuring: Walter Cronkite, Robert De Niro, Matt Damon and Kevin Costner) tells the gripping true story of Stanislav Petrov - a young man who single-handedly averted a full-scale Nuclear World War, but now struggles to get his life back on track. The film – half documentary, half reconstruction – tells the extraordinary story of how Petrov, a commanding officer at a Russian army nuclear weapons station in September, 1983 was faced with a report that American missiles had been launched and were incoming. It was his decision whether or not to launch a retaliatory strike. The filmmakers follow the real Petrov, now a crotchety alcoholic haunted by the past, as he visits the US to receive an award by the United Nations. “This account of a Cold War near miss deserves a wide audience" - New York Times
