In Mexico, at the time of the Emperor Maximilian, lives a young nobleman Don Ricardo Villaverde, cynically in love. The twists and turns in the aristocrats behavior are provoked by sudden appearances of the son of Zorro, a masked supporter of the rebels and engaged in collecting aid for the revolution. A load of weapons is being shipped to the Alcalde of San Ramon, Don Herrera Coser, but a rebel, Garincha, is aware of the shipment and attacks the convoy and Don Coser is killed, while his daughter Donna Conchita manages to escape and hide with the help of the son of Zorro and he falls in love with her. Meanwhile, the weapons are taken into possession by the rebels and now armed the peons and a revolution begins, the Governor and his wife are forced to flee. Having accomplished his mission, the Son of Zorro gallops toward the house where Conchita is living, unhappily married to Don Ricardo Villaverde and discloses to her his true identity.
