Young Edmond Dantes has everything to look forward to—he is soon to be captain of his own ship and to marry his beloved Mercedes. But his future is cruelly blighted when spiteful enemies provoke his wrongful arrest and he is condemned to lifelong imprisonment. Dantes' fate seems sealed. How can he avenge his accusers and reverse his fortune? The answer lies hidden of the Island of Monte Cristo.
