Based on the real-life story of Alan Turing, who is credited with cracking the German Enigma code, The Imitation Game portrays the nail-biting race against time undertaken by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of the Second World War. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war and saved thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.
