The Flash is an action-packed, thrilling show that follows the story of Barry Allen, a brilliant CSI investigator. Tragedy struck Barry at a young age when his mother was killed in a mysterious incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. But with the help of his adoptive father and best friend’s dad, Detective Joe West, Barry rises above the tragedy and becomes a driven and endearingly geeky investigator.
His quest to uncover the truth about his mother’s death leads him to a cutting-edge particle accelerator created by Harrison Wells and the S.T.A.R. Labs team. But when the accelerator’s public unveiling goes awry and a freak storm occurs, Barry’s life changes once again as he gains the power of super speed.
As he uses his abilities to protect the innocent, he discovers that he’s not the only “meta-human” created by the accident and not all of them have good intentions. With a renewed purpose to solve his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name, Barry becomes the hero known as The Flash, moving through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Only a few know his secret, but it won’t be long before the world discovers the true identity of The Flash.
