THE FATE OF MONTE CRISTO

Edmond Dantes was a young sailor who, in 1815, returned to Marseilles with great expectations.

But Dantes' enemies had him imprisoned in the dungeons of Château D'If.

In prison, Dantes met and befriended an Italian abbé who educated him and then, in death, helped him escape with a fabulous secret of a treasure on the island of Monte Cristo.

Rich and posing as the Count of Monte Cristo, Dantes returned with a beautiful companion named Haidee.

Dantes worked hard to ruin of the men who imprisoned him those many years are coming to fruition.

Danglars, his former shipmate. Fernand who stole Mercedes from him. Villefort, who signed the order for his imprisonment.

After his revenge, the Count of Monte Cristo married Haidee and fathered a son named Spero.

But will the past catch up with Dantes in the form of the evil bandit Benedetto, who has started to wreak havoc?

Will Dantes lose all that he truly loves?
