Abstract

A highly fictionalized account of the British cryptography project during World War II. Still reeling from the disappearance of his lover Claire, brilliant code-breaker Tom Jericho is summoned to Bletchley Park, Britain's top-secret intelligence campus. Now he must face his toughest assignment--crack the Nazis' infamous Enigma codes. Putting together the pieces of a puzzle, he discovers the reason for his lover's disappearance, U-boats closing in on Allied cargo ships, and a mass grave in Poland (the site of the Katyn massacre). The film makes no mention of Alan Turing, the cryptographer who deciphered the Enigma codes.
