The time is now. The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, America's mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the enemy fleet speeds toward Hawaii, the warship's Captain (Kirk Douglas), a Defense Department expert (Martin Sheen), a maverick Air Wing Commander (James Farentino), and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration (Charles Durning) must choose between the unthinkable? Do they allow the Japanese or complete their invasion or launch a counterstrike changing history?
