Description

Astrid is a teen living in Vancouver who has lost everything: her girlfriend to a guy and her social status when her parents lose their jobs. Determined to make her way into university, she joins a robotics club hoping to make contacts and win a scholarship but also finds the love of her life. The Love Code tells the story of a relatable teen navigating the contemporary world of women working in STEM careers within a changing economy.
