Sydney Bristow, a vivacious, athletic grad student, discovers
that her not-so-typical after-school job as an agent for
SD-6, a top-secret division of the CIA, holds some deadly
secrets that not only put her life in danger but also
threaten the security of the free world...
Recruited freshman year,
the then shy and lonely Sydney jumped at the chance
to add some meaning and excitement to her life. Little
did she know how great shed be at espionage or
how much shed love it. Today Sydney is no longer
shy or alone. Boyfriend Danny has just proposed and
her best friend Francie couldnt be happier. Her
friend Will, however, has to feign happiness, keeping
his unrequited love for her to himself.
Sydney now finds herself
facing a moral dilemma: What does she want from the
rest of her life, and what does she tell her friends
and would-be fiancé? Sydneys SD-6 partner,
Dixon, a devoted family man, warns her not to reveal
her secret to Danny, and Sydney knows that SD-6 leader
Sloane would not look kindly on any breach of security.
Even Marshall, SD-6s highly inventive weapons
and gadget maker a super intelligent man with
noticeably lacking social skills -- knows that divulging
their identities is strictly verboten. This is the one
rule you dont break.
When Sydney breaks protocol and tells Danny about her
secret life, her world is spun terrifyingly sideways:
Dannys life is placed in mortal danger, and Sydney
is in a fight for her own life. She discovers that her
long-estranged father, Jack, is also SD-6 and that the
organization is covering up a nefarious plan
they are not a branch of the CIA, but are actually an
enemy of the United States. With nowhere else to turn,
Sydney seeks the aid of the real CIA in hopes of putting
SD-6 out of business. She is put under the command of
operations officer Vaughn who enlists Sydney to become
a double agent. Her mission is to complete her cases
at SD-6 while reporting her findings back to the CIA.
But when Sydney finds out that her father is also affiliated
with the CIA, she begins to question where his true
allegiances really lie.
