Manchester. Winter 1952. Following the burglary of his home, Professor Turing reports to the police station. Unconventional looking, he is not taken seriously by Sergeant Ross. But his presence does not escape the attention of the Secret Service. And for good reason, Alan Turing is a man with many secrets... From his incredible determination to break the "Enigma", to his irrepressible race to understand the "code" of nature, we discover an atypical and endearing man, inventor of a "thinking machine", the true genesis of artificial intelligence and computers...
This is the extraordinary destiny of a genius who was unjustly kept in the shadows and crushed by the well-meaning "machine" of 1950s England. A man who changed the world!
