Few people know of Stanislav Petrov… yet hundreds of millions of people are alive because of him." The Man Who Saved the World tells the true story of Stanislav Petrov - a man who single-handedly averted a fullscale NUCLEAR WORLD WAR, but now struggles to get his life back on track… before it is too late. With a NEW COLD WAR rising and thousands of nuclear weapons on hair-trigger alert, we still live under the same catastrophic danger that Stanislav faced back then.
