The year is 1850 and our swashbuckling crusader is challenged by the most dangerous mission of his life in this sequel to 1998s The Mask of Zorro.
After fighting to help California become the 31st state of the Union, Zorro (Antonio Banderas) must live up to the promise he made his wife, Elena (Catherine Zeta Jones) - to give up his secret identity and live a normal life as Alejandro de la Vega with her and their son, Joaquin (Adrian Alonso), who knows nothing of his fathers secret life. When Zorro hesitates, it threatens to tear them apart.
Now, the same forces that conspired to keep California from becoming part of the United States are plotting to unleash a threat that has been 500 years in the making, a threat that could challenge the course of history forever.
And only Zorro can stop it.
