Dougray Scott plays Tom Jericho, a brilliant young mathematician, who, as the movie begins, is returning to the Bletchley Park code-breaking center after a nervous breakdown. As we learn in flashback, Jericho had made the mistake of falling for the ravishing, sexually promiscuous cipher clerk Claire Romilly (Saffron Burrows), who is now missing. Jericho is still a broken man, but his eccentric team of code-breakers needs his skills more than ever - because soon after Claire's disappearance, the Germans changed their naval codes, putting their U-boats in strategic position in the North Atlantic. Jericho is also under pressure from Wigram (Jeremy Northam), a smooth but bullying counterintelligence agent who believes that Claire was a German mole. In his efforts to prove her innocence, Jericho teams up with her shy, dowdy roommate, Hester (Kate Winslet). But long before the explosive climax, it becomes clear that the mysterious Claire was at the center of a web of plots and counterplots.
