The magic begins in Marseilles in 1815. Edmond Dantes is about to marry his true love, Mercedes when three jealous scoundrels, General Fernand Mondego, Dorleac and Calaruse frame him for a robbery. Edmond is captured and thrown into France's most famous prison, Chateau D'lfprison. Two years later, he meets fellow inmate Abbe Faria, together they tunnel their way out of prison. Abbe is too weak to join Edmund's bid for freedom but before Edmond escapes Abbe gives him a map of the Monastery on the Isle of Monte Cristo, where he believes a king's fortune was hidden three centuries ago. Abbe makes Edmond swear to use the treasure to seek justice and not revenge. Edmond discovers the Isle and its treasure and returns to France to seek justice as the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo! Fifteen years later, Edmond finally makes it to Marseilles where he finds his loyal servant (the funky feline) Louis. Together they leave for Paris to find Mondego and his motley crew. Louis enlists the help of Fiorello, a clumsy chef and Lucia, a beautiful girl disguised as a serving boy. But... can his friends help him find justice and can Lucia teach Edmond that love is more important than revenge?
