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 that those at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep secret.
When Ned and Jesse Banks publish a video of a mysterious outback accident involving two teenagers and a truck from a classified research facility, they face the full weight of a political machine desperate to hide the truth.
As Ned investigates the truck accident in the remote town of Lindara, Jesse comes face to face with the 'extraordinary' new powers of the law.
Wracked by guilt that Jesse has paid such a high price for trying to help his investigation, Ned fears the worst when he discovers Jesse missing.
Ned and Jesse are on the run; their house has been ransacked, their phones bugged, and their computers tracked. With no one to turn to, their only hope is to find the truth in Lindara.
Ned and Jesse are forced into an impossible choice - Hani's life in exchange for technology capable of wiping entire cities from the face of the earth.
