Synopsis

Tells the story of Alan Turing, the mathematical genius who was responsible for designing the computer that enabled the Allies during World War II to crack the German Enigma code. On Churchill's specific instructions, Turing was given all the resources he required and his personal behavior was tolerated -- Turing was an active homosexual at a time when homosexuality was illegal. After the War, facing impeding prosecution and exposure, Turing committed suicide in 1954.
