The fascinated youth invites the nobleman to mingle within the upper echelons of Parisian society, and the Count is soon courting the favor of France’s most powerful families. Little does Albert know, as his new friend walks the ornate halls of  the highest class, the Count of Monte Cristo wants only to bring them crashing down through vengeance.
