Breaking The Code by Hugh Whitemore is a gripping biographical drama about homosexual scientist Alan Turing, the eccentric genius who fought on two fronts. Turing played a major role in winning the World War II, and he also battled with British morality. He broke the complex German code called Enigma, enabling allied forces to foresee Nazi u-boat maneuvers.
Since his work was classified top secret for years after the war, no one knew how much was owed to him when he was put on trial for breaking another code – the taboo against homosexuality. Turing, who was also the first to conceive of and basically invent the computer, the machine that forever altered our modern world, was convicted of the criminal act of homosexuality and sentenced to undergo hormone treatments which left him physically and mentally debilitated. He died a suicide, forgotten and alone.
