Alias Summary

Home > Television > A > Alias > Summary

A drama series about a young woman who works as a spy while trying to hide her occupation from her estranged father and her boyfriend. Sydney Bristow, an athletic grad student, has a not-so-typical after-school job -- she's an agent for SD-6, a top-secret division of the CIA. Recruited freshman year, the then shy and lonely Sydney jumped at the chance to be part of something bigger than English 101 and Calculus II. Little did she know how great she'd be at espionage or how much she'd love it. Today, Sydney is no longer shy or alone. Her boyfriend has proposed and Sydney faces a dilemma: What does she want from the rest of her life? Revealing her secret career is verboten, but Sydney does, and suddenly her boyfriend's life is in danger. She also discovers that her long-estranged father, Jack, is also SD-6 and that the organization might be covering up a secretly nefarious plan.
