Biopic details brilliant mathematician Alan Turing's efforts to crack Nazi Germany's Enigma code during World War II.
Alan Turing, prodigious mathematician renowned for his original concepts regarding computing and artificial intelligence at Cambridge University, is called into service for his native Great Britain during World War II when he is asked to help decode Nazi naval transmissions sent with the assistance of the tough-to-crack Enigma machine.
