Edmond Dantes is falsely accused of Bonapartism and sentenced to spend the rest of his life imprisoned in the dreaded Chateau dIf, an island fortress from which no prisoner has ever escaped, and to which the most dangerous political prisoners are sent. While imprisoned, he meets Abbe Faria, a fellow prisoner whom everyone believes to be mad. Abbe tells Edmond of a fantastic treasure hidden away on a tiny island, that only he knows the location. After many years in prison, the old Abbe dies, and Edmond escapes disguised as the dead body to find the treasure Abbe told him of, so he can use the new-found wealth to exact revenge on those who have wronged him.
