October 1962. Soviet ships are charging the American blockade around Cuba. The world is on the brink of thermonuclear war. Meanwhile, in Canada, Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, is enjoying a majority government, popularity and a lovely fall day picking flowers with his wife. All that changes with the arrival of a personal letter from J.F. Kennedy.
Join Dief as he navigates his way through the ultimate crisis that could see neighbours on both sides fight a nuclear war with Canada, literally in the middle. The personal cost to him will be great as he deals with a demanding President, a divided cabinet, and a fierce opposition.
From the pen of multi-award winning actor/playwright Pierre Brault, writer of such hits as Blood on the Moon, Portrait of an Unidentified Man, and Will Somers: Keeping your Head, a riveting portrait of one of Canada’s unsung leaders.
