{u'label': u'A teenager, bored by traditional high school subjects like biology but fascinated by computers, accidentally taps into the Pentagon\'s top-secret computer...the USA\'s NORAD system. He starts what he innocently believes is a computer game called "Global Thermonuclear War," but the "game" is real. The Pentagon\'s best minds cannot shut down or reprogram the supercomputer that is readying a missile attack against the USSR, and thereby unleash Armageddon. The teen and his girlfriend attempt to aid the helpless Pentagon and, in a frantic race against a ticking "doomsday clock," try to persuade the computer to end the "game."'} After hacking into a supercomputer at North American Aerospace Defense Command, David tells it to start preparing a real nuclear strike. A young man finds a back door into a military central computer in which reality is confused with game-playing, possibly starting World War III.
