‘Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb’ Movie Synopsis

In Dr. Strangelove, when the U.S. Air Force General, Jack Ripper, goes mad, he orders his bomber wing to destroy the Soviet Union. He suspects that the communists are conspiring to pollute the precious bodily fluids of the American people. As the U.S. president meets with his advisors, the Soviet ambassador tells him that if nuclear weapons hit them, the assault will trigger their Doomsday Machine; thus destroying all plant and animal life on Earth. Now, it’s a rush against time as clashing personalities play a sinister game of Chess with innocent lives in the balance.
