In 1942, Lawrence Pritchard Waterhouse -- mathematical genius and young Captain in the U.S. Navy -- is assigned to Detachment 2702. It is an outfit so secret that only a handful of people know it exists. The mission of Waterhouse and Detachment 2702 -- commanded by Marine Raider Bobby Shaftoe -- is to keep the Nazis ignorant of the fact that Allied Intelligence has cracked the enemy's fabled Enigma code. It is a game, a cryptographic chess match between Waterhouse and his German counterpart, translated into action by gung-ho Shaftoe and his forces. Fast-forward to the present, where Waterhouse's crypto-hacker grandson, Randy, is attempting to create a "data haven" in Southeast Asia -- a place where encrypted data can be stored and exchanged free of repression and scrutiny. As governments and multinationals attack the endeavor, Randy joins forces with Shaftoe's tough-as-nails granddaughter, Amy, to secretly salvage a sunken Nazi submarine that holds the key to keeping the dream of a data haven afloat.
