Hunkered down with a large single malt I was looking for sone classic SciFi.
At random, I happened across The 27th Day.
Have to find your amusement where you can these days.
The 27th Day (1957)
Five individuals from five nations, including the "Superpowers," USA, USSR, and China, suddenly find themselves on an alien spacecraft. An alien
gives each a container holding capsules. No power on earth can open a given container except a mental command from the person to whom it is given.
Each person has been provided with the power of life and death. Any of these individuals has the capability to instantaneously launch the capsules to
whatever coordinates he/she chooses, and each capsule will then eradicate all human life within a 3,000-mile radius of its designated location.
