Plot Summary: A wealthy parisian youth named Albert travels to Luna with his best friend Franz to join a massive party so as to take his mind off the "boring" lifestyle he leads back at his mansion in Paris. After being tricked by a potential concubine and taken hostage by the notorious Luigi Vampa gang, his friend Franz is forced to ask for the assistance of their recent acquaintance, the fabulously wealthy "Count of Monte Cristo". After easily freeing Albert from the clutches of the bandits, the Count is invited into Parisian high society. Little does the starstruck youth know, the Count has already formed plans far beyond the comprehension of Albert or his friends and relatives to utterly destroy everything that they hold dear.
