The Count of Monte Cristo's machinations are wreaking havoc on his enemies.
Edmond Dantes was a young sailor who, in 1815, returned to Marseilles with great expectations.
But Dantes's enemies had him imprisoned in the dungeons of Château D'If.
Doomed to rot in prison, Dantes met and befriended an Italian abbé who educates him and then, in death, helped him escape with a fabulous secret of a treasure on the island of Monte Cristo.
Then, rich and posing as the Count of Monte Cristo, Dantes returned with a beautiful companion named Haidee.
With information from the landlord Caderousse, Dantes plotted the ruin of the men who imprisoned him those many years.
Danglars, his former shipmate. Fernand, who stole Mercedes from him. Villefort, who signed the order for his imprisonment.
But there are complications in the Count's plans.
Mercedes and Fernand have had a son named Albert, who comes into the sights of the Count of Monte Cristo's plans for revenge.
Will Dantes kill the son of the woman he'd so loved?
