CODEBREAKER tells the remarkable true story of one of the 20th century's most important people.  Alan Turing set in motion the computer age and his heroic codebreaking helped win 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.  You can watch a two-minute trailer for CODEBREAKER at  
Join us for an intro by Creator and Executive Producer of the film Patrick Sammon, the movie screening and Q&A session.
