Synopsis

A tough-as-nails CIA officer, a young Y2K computer genius and the burnt-out, sarcastic designer of a top-secret missile silo in the Colombian jungles are flown in to the site of the U.S. nuclear facility -- established in the 1960s -- as part of a team to destabilize its computer because it thinks it's 1969 and the U.S. has suffered a nuclear attack. Unless its deactivation codes are implemented, a massive nuclear strike will be launched within 24 hours. The teams must overcome a hostile, Colombian drug lord who is protecting his territory and deadly obstacles intended to prevent entrance to the silo's compound.
