Everyone has a secret... and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has
dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of
the nation's elite and keeping those secrets under wraps.
Revered and feared at the same time, Olivia, a former media consultant to the President of the United States, left the White House to open her own prominent crisis management firm.
She is hoping to start a new chapter in her life -both professionally and personally-but she can't seem to completely cut ties with her past.
Slowly it becomes apparent that her dysfunctional staff, who specialize in fixing other people's lives, can't quite fix the ones closest at hand - their own.
