Michael Scofield is a structural engineer who robs a bank and is immediately sentenced to a maximum security prison, Fox River State Penitentiary. Once there, Michael quickly locates his brother, Lincoln Burrows and tells him that he has hatched a plan to break them both out of prison. Lincoln is serving a death sentence at Fox River for the murder of Terrence Steadman, who is the brother of the Vice President of the United States. Their childhood friend and lawyer, Veronica Donovan worries about Michael's reason for insisting to be incarcerated at Fox River. After a series of mysterious happenings, Veronica begins to suspect a conspiracy behind the crime Lincoln supposedly committed. She is joined by another lawyer, Nick Savrinn who specializes in death penalty cases, and they discover that Lincoln's case may involve people that have one of the highest authority in the country.

As they continue to hunt down evidence to prove Lincoln's innocence, Michael begins collect the tools to execute his escape plan. This requires him to form alliances with various prison staff and inmates. Along the way, Michael establishes trust between himself and Warden Pope, and the prison doctor, Sara Tancredi. However, as Lincoln's execution day draws closer, Michael is forced to manipulate those he has grown close to and take risks that may ruin his entire escape plan.
