A young talented mathematician signs up voluntarily, during time pressure he need to interpret the Nazi complex code that they use to communicate with each other.

The imitation game.

In the darkest days of World War II, brilliant but eccentric mathematician Alan Turing and a team of code-breakers race against time to decrypt the German communications code. (28 words)

I know, I know the rule is: don’t waste precious space naming  the protagonist.  But since the story is 1] based on real events; and 2] Alan Turing is a legend in the field of mathematics, cryptography and AI, I think identifying him by name constitutes a  story hook.  So I think that this logline gets a  pass as an exception to the general rule.
