Probably everyone at least once has faced betrayal. A broken promise, gossip behind your back, non-fulfilled request for help, infidelity – betrayal has many forms, both large and small. And each of them is destructive – not only because it hurts, but also because it wounds the very ability to trust. And such a wound could be deadly. Besides, betrayal changes both the one, who has betrayed, and the one, who has been betrayed, sometimes bringing to the world various monsters, not the last of which is a thirst for revenge.

...Young sailor Edmond Danthes returns to Marseille, full of joyful hopes and faith in the future: he will be the captain of Pharaoh, his bride is waiting for him – and she is the most beautiful girl ever, he will be able to provide a decent life for his beloved father. But Edmond encounters someone else's envy, meanness and fear – and after twenty-four years a mysterious count of Monte Cristo appears in Paris.
