Summary
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. In 1952, the British Government forced him to undergo chemical castration as punishment for his homosexuality. Documentary elements seamlessly interconnect with drama scenes in to offer a three dimensional picture of Turing, his accomplishments, his tragic end, and his lasting legacy
