Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The "code" in question refers to a pivotal telephone number - 11 digits that, when dialed, will trigger a global apocalypse by instantly setting off catastrophic nuclear devices in four metropolises around the world. As this Russian-language thriller opens, two individuals find their lives, and futures, at the mercy of "The Code"; FSB Agent Darya (Anastasiya Zavorotnyuk) sets out to defuse the devices in question and render the 11 digits ineffective, while the psychotic Louis Devier (Vincent Perez) wants nothing less than to attain those elusive numbers and use them to completely wipe humankind from the face of the Earth. These two embark on a head-to-head conflict, in a transcontinental race against time that will carry each through such exotic locales as Norway, Malaysia and Italy. Moreover, the stakes are not simply political, but personal: Louis caused significant emotional and psychological grief for Darya by murdering her lover. Nevertheless, Darya is forbidden from enacting vengeance, and must focus exclusively on her mission at hand, however difficult the task.
