"CODEBREAKER tells the remarkable and tragic story of one of the 20th
century's most important people. Alan Turing set in motion the computer
age and his World War II codebreaking helped turn the tide of the
Second World War. Instead of receiving accolades, Turing faced terrible
persecution. In 1952, the British Government forced him to undergo
chemical castration as punishment for his homosexuality. In despair,
Turing committed suicide. He was only 41 years old. Documentary
elements seamlessly interconnect with drama scenes in CODEBREAKER
to offer a three dimensional picture of Turing, his accomplishments, his
tragic end, and his lasting legacy."
