The Mask of Zorro - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Don Rafeal Montero stole everything from him. Montero stole his daughter, his wife's life, and his freedom. And now, 20 years later, Don Diego de la Vega, also known as Zorro, has returned to the land that he once fought for to fulfill his search of vengeance. As skilled as he is, de la Vega is an intelligent man, and he knows that Montero, surrounded by an army, will not be easy to kill, certainly at his age. So, he must find a new man to replace him, to don the mask of Zorro and once again uphold justice.
His name is Alejandro Murieta, a bandit, and he is seeking revenge for the death of his brother. By chance, he stumbles upon his old-time idol, Zorro, and is taken in for training. Don Diego works to transform Murieta from a roughneck to a gentleman, a fighter to a swordsman, and a bandit into a hero. Together, the two Zorros will unite to destroy Montero's evil scheme and bring freedom to the people once again.
