Movie Summary

Martin Campbell

Don Diego de la Vega is Zorro, a masked avenger who fights for his country's poor peasants. Twenty years have passed since Don Raphael Montero exposed Zorro's true identity. After ensuring his enemy's imprisonment, Montero orchestrated the death of Zorro's wife and stole the couple's newborn daughter, fleeing to Spain with the child. But now, Montero has returned and with him is the beautiful Elena, Zorro's long lost daughter. Passionate about life again, Zorro escapes from prison, plotting revenge on the man who ruined his life. Zorro knows he will need help to get the job done right, and when he meets Alejandro Murrieta, he knows he's found his man. Alejandro is eager to help; he harbours his own grudges against Montero, holding him responsible for the death of his brother. Will the aging nobleman be able to teach his young protege enough to take down their mutual enemy?
