Project Description


The month is December, 1989––less than a year after President George H.W. Bush has taken office. A meeting of the National Security Council is convened, to discuss the fate of these United States of America. From the perestroika of the Soviet Union to conflicts in Latin America and Middle East, the National Security Council has a great deal of tasks at hand. Can a room full of some of the most powerful men in the United States maintain their country’s global advantage, or will the world fall victim to all-out nuclear war?
