It is 1980 and Americans have elected a new president; one who is prepared to take a radically different - and dangerous - approach to foreign affairs. Since the dawn of the nuclear age, the United States and the Soviet Union have been locked in an escalating power struggle. The threat has been nothing less than global annihilation. As Ronald Reagan, the former-actor turned Cold Warrior prepares to assume office, he is determined to make good on his long-held convictions about the Soviets. This program illustrates how Reagan's unshakable faith in his ability to bring down the "Evil Empire" ultimately led to Soviet capitulation and the collapse of the Iron Curtain.
