Plot / Synopsis
The year is 1850. The territory of California is seeking to become the 31st state of the union, but certain unscrupulous individuals, members of a mysterious medieval organization, are determined to prevent this event from transpiring.
Once again the masked hero, Zorro, must come to the aid of the people of California so they can become citizens of the United States of America.
At the same time, a corrupt robber baron McGivens (Nick Chinlund) is intimidating the law-abiding residents of California, seizing their land and threatening their livelihoods.
Again, only Zorro can stop him.
Don Alejandro de la Vega (Antonio Benderas), who inherited the mask of Zorro, is now married to Elena (Catherine Zeta-Jones). They have a 10-year-old son, Joaquin (Adrian Alonso). The boy misses his father, who is rarely at home. And when he is, Joaquin finds himself wishing that Don Alejandro behaved more like his idealized her Zorro -- having no idea that the two men are the same person.
Meanwhile, Elena forces Alejandro to choose between his family and his crusading alter ego. When an unexpected crisis forces Alejandro to once again don the mask of Zorro, Elena feels betrayed and kicks him out of the house. Soon after, she serves him with divorce papers.
When a former schoolmate of Elena's, the French aristocrat (Rufus Sewell), move to California to start a winery, he is thrilled to discover that Elena has separated from her husband.
He immediately begins to woo her, while at the same time attending to his duties as the head of the Knights Of Aragon, a secret ancient fraternity.
Don Alejandro now finds himself caught in a dilemma between his obligation to serve the oppressed and threatened people of California and his responsibilities as husband and father.
