Plot Summary
When a reactor leak destroys the cooling system in a Minnesota nuclear plant, the system's main computer in Colorado shuts the containment room, killing all of the men inside. Nuclear power honcho Henry Stone (Ralph Waite) stands by the computer, insisting that it's foolproof, but nuclear power watchdog Frank Brolen (William Devane) disagrees and leads his troubleshooting team into the plant. The computer, he finds, has been dreadfully malfunctioning, and a meltdown is imminent.
