Synopsis

Seasons 1, 2 and 3 of the real-time drama series featuring Federal Agent Jack Bauer (Keifer Sutherland). In 'Day One', Jack, an agent for the CIA's Counter Terrorist Unti (CTU), is trying to prevent the assassination of frontrunning Democrat candidate Senator David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert), after the CTU receives a death threat against him. However, a traitor amongst Jack's colleagues manages to hamper his progress, and Jack finds that he has been framed for the assassination himself. He flees the CIA agents on his tail in a desperate attempt to find the real perpetrators, led by Ira Gaines (Michael Massee). Injured, and armed with nothing except his mobile phone and the help of trusted colleague Nina Myers (Sarah Clarke), Jack's situation becomes increasingly precarious. Meanwhile, his teenage daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) has gone missing after sneaking out of the house with her friend Janet (Jacqui Maxwell), and Jack's ex-wife Terri (Leslie Hope) unwittingly puts herself in grave danger when she goes looking for her. 'Day Two' takes place a year after Jack prevented Palmer's assassination. Having had time off to cope with his wife's death, Jack is now called upon by the CTU to find and detonate a terrorist nuclear bomb in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Kim, who has been working as an au pair, is forced to go on the run from her abusive employer after he attacks her and the little girl, Megan (Skye McCole Bartusiak), that she is looking after. But when she takes Megan to the hospital, Kim is arrested for abusing the child. 'Day Three' takes place three years on from the events of Day Two. Jack has successfully captured and imprisoned the head of a Mexican drug cartel. But when a van deposits a dead body outside the LA Health Unit infected with a deadly virus, the Counter Terrorist Unit uncover a plot to blackmail the US Government with the threat of a released bio-weapon that will kill millions to ensure the release of the drug baron. Jack must infiltrate the gang and rid the world of the virus threat. Meanwhile, President Palmer is in LA seeking re-election to a second term, with his new chief of staff and girlfriend in tow.
