On 13 January 2018, Hawaiians were suddenly confronted by an urgent nuclear threat. This was the text message they received from their country’s emergency management agency:

Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.

This documentary captures the voices of the people who experienced the events of that day, viscerally recreating what happened during the 38 minutes they had to react and make impossible decisions in the face of a possible nuclear catastrophe.
