** It gets worse. Normal gold is [[superscript:197]]Au. When exposed to neutron flux—say, from a thermonuclear detonation—gold can catch an extra neutron, becoming [[superscript:198]]Au. [[superscript:198]]Au is a dangerously radioactive β⁻ emitter with a half-life of about 2.7 days.

The aftermath of the initial showing of the film had a profound effect on politics. UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, who viewed the film when it came out, was greatly disturbed and claimed the movie left him "deeply depressed" for a while. Keep in mind, before this movie aired, Soviet and U.S. relations were strained to a level not seen since the CubanMissileCrisis. [[UsefulNotes/{{NATO}} NATO's]] infamous Able Archer 83 exercise in Western Europe that took place in early 1983 was another close call, because the Soviets thought the exercise was an escalation of forces in Europe and that NATO was ready to go to nuclear war with the Warsaw Pact. After attending a meeting with the Pentagon about nuclear weapons shortly after the movie was released, Reagan became further repulsed by the idea of nuclear weapons and he wanted to solve the Cold War peacefully with the Soviets from that point on. In 1987, not only was the film shown on Soviet television for the first time, but the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was signed by the United States and USSR. The treaty banned nuclear and conventional ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with intermediate ranges. In his memoir, Reagan directly mentioned a quote from the movie in relation about the signing.

The film takes place in and around Kansas City, Missouri and Lawrence, Kansas, which are in the geographic center of the United States. At first, the film follows the daily lives of a number of locals; a Kansas City physician (Dr. Russell Oakes, played by Creator/JasonRobards) and his wife (Helen Oakes), a University of Kansas professor (Joe Huxley), one of the students there (Stephen Klein), a family of farmers from Harrisonville, Missouri (the Dahlbergs), and a soldier (Billy [=McCoy=]) stationed at Whiteman Air Force Base, home to a number of [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower Minuteman II missile silos]].

* AliensInCardiff: What makes the film so effective is its setting in the American heartland, underscoring the face that there is nowhere to run with nuclear war.
