Loyalty Code is an inquiry into our universal struggles between loyalty and doing what’s right. The feature documentary provides an inside look at the Penn State family and the lengths they go to protect their family, preserve their traditions, and restore the legacy of football coach Joe Paterno. Four Penn State students with clashing perspectives on loyalty and belonging navigate us through the moral codes of loyalty, morality, and self-interest. This film will make you rethink loyalty.
