The groundbreaking thriller, starring Kiefer Sutherland as Special Agent Jack
Bauer, 24 is filmed in real-time. Combined with split-screen scenes of
simultaneous action, 24 takes place hour-by-hour over 24 hours on the day of
the Californian Presidential elections. The action starts at midnight as Jack
Bauer of the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) faces the longest day of his life. He
is about to take on his toughest missions to date – to foil the assassination
attempt on presidential candidate Senator David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert), and to
rebuild his marriage with his wife Terri (Leslie Hope). When their daughter
Kimberly (Elisha Cuthbert) sneaks out with her best friend Janet, Terri sets out
to find her with the help of the Janet's father.
In the meantime, Jack has been framed for the assassination attempt and flees
the CIA agents to find the real perpetrators led by Ira Gaines (Michael Massee).
The plot thickens as revelations about Senator Palmer's family arise and
Terri's hunt for Kimberly gets more and more dangerous. Jack becomes
incapacitated and only has his mobile phone and the help of his trusted
colleague at CTU Nina Myers (Sarah Clarke) to help him. Nina works undercover to
provide Jack with information about Gaines and the wherabouts of his family.
