Decrypted is an outrageous and provocative dark comedy about a mismatched NSA team who kidnap the creator of Bitcoin - Satoshi Nakamoto - and attempt to torture him for the information they need to destroy cryptocurrencies.
The botched NSA interrogation forces together a homophobic field agent, a feminist technical adviser, a transgender asylum seeker, a crypto-anarchist, a racist Brexiteer and an inclusionist MI5 agent.
Sparks fly when their respective prejudices clash. But when they all succumb to a truth drug, their newfound honesty has riotous consequences…
Decrypted stars Sophia Myles (Transformers: Age of Extinction, A Discovery of Witches), David Hoflin (Z: The Beginning of Everything, Bosch), Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, Mr Selfridge), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean, Designated Survivor), Talisa Garcia (Baptiste, The Girlfriend Experience), Don Gilet (The Stranger, The Loch), Clive Francis (The Crown, A Clockwork Orange), Akie Kotabe (The Man in the High Castle, Jason Bourne) and Sophie Barker (The Holly Kane Experiment, Caged).
Decrypted is the fifth film from father-son writer-director team Mick Sands and Tom Sands, and producer Phil Harris. The team’s previous work includes Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, nominee for Best Comedy at the National Film Awards 2020.
