Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father (Emmy winner John Wesley Shipp) was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), the father of Barry's best friend, Iris (Candice Patton). Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother's strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along.

However, keeping his secret from his best friend Iris (Candice Patton) is proving to be harder than he thought, especially when Joe's new partner, Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett), catches her eye. When another meta-human attacks the city, it's time to put Barry's new powers, and himself, to the test.
