Edmond Dantes, a sailor, returns home to Marseilles with the cargo he was assigned to retrieve and news of the death of that ship's captain. After making his report to the boss of the shipping company he is promoted to captain because of his loyalty and perseverance and joins his fiancé to plan their wedding. On his wedding day he is arrested and falsely accused as a traitorous Napoleonic conspirator and sent to the Isle Chateau D'If where he is to remain imprisoned for the rest of his life and suffer unrelenting torture. In this prison after seven years and almost giving up hope, he meets Abbe Faria who is also sentenced to be incarcerated on the Isle forever. Faria is quite old but is digging a tunnel to the sea where he plans to escape. The Abbe sees that Dantes' depression is the real prison, not the lack of nourishing food and strengthening activity, so Faria begins to teach Dantes languages, politics, law, mathematics, science, and fencing. Faria becomes a father figure to Dantes. But after 14 years the Abbe has a terrible accident while tunnelling and will soon die because of it. He tells Dantes how to escape and gives him the location of a great treasure. Dantes slips through the guards' fingers, finds the treasure which makes him as rich as a country, and calls himself The Count of Monte Cristo to conceal his true identity. But Dantes has spent his 14 years in prison devising the ruination of those "friends" who abandoned him to devastation. He believes that happiness must be fed by great suffering, therefore he constructs a Godlike deportment to win the trust and confidence of the long-lost acquaintances so that his revenge will be complete and their downfall will be downright termination. When the last target is felled, The Count of Monte Cristo goes away quickly and leaves this message: "Wait and hope."
