The population of the area is still harassed by the Governor but another mysterious knight, also called Zorro, counteracts the misdeeds of the tyrant, he stops a stagecoach attacked by bandits and falls in love with Virginia de Santa Anna, the young bride of the governor. The governor organizes a trap to catch him, but Zorro, shot in the arm flees. In the inn of Mary soldiers find the clothes of Zorro and Diego, who has a deep wound in his arm, despite his protests, he is arrested.
