Ashore, he is separated from his sweetheart, Mercedes, and is arrested and imprisoned at the infamous Chateau d’lf. He befriends fellow prisoner Abbe Faria, who educates him and reveals the source of a huge fortune.
When Dantes makes his miraculous escape, he finds the hidden treasure, establishes himself as the Count of Monte Cristo, and goes to Paris to seek revenge. He seeks out and triumphs over his enemies and reunites with Mercedes.
