Stretching from the spectacular red desert of Australia’s outback to the cool corridors of power in Canberra, THE CODE tells the story of two very different brothers who unearth information those at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep secret.
In the middle of the outback a stolen 4WD collides with a transport truck. Two local kids in the car are hurt. Badly. Someone should have called for help. But they didn’t.
They didn’t because that ‘someone’ works for a major stakeholder in an international research project no-one talks about.
The kids’ accident would have remained a mystery if it weren’t for Ned (Dan Spielman) and Jesse Banks (Ashley Zukerman) – a young internet journalist desperate for a break, and his troubled hacker brother on a strict good-behavior bond.
Ned and Jesse Banks are gifted a poisoned chalice when a phone video of the outback accident arrives in their in-box. And posting it on-line will cost them more than they ever imagined. Together, they suddenly become the unlikeliest crusaders for democracy.
The decision to dig deeper drags the brothers into the darkest heart of politics, and the web of black marketeers and the international agencies who monitor and manipulate them.
The question is just how far those in authority will go to keep their explosive secret safe.
And just how far the two brothers will go to reveal the truth.
