Zack, a cynical adventurer, robs an old pioneer, Alfaro, and his daughter Gladys a map that indicates the place where the Indians have hidden a fabulous diamond which they consider sacred.  Determined to prevent the theft of jewelry, Zorro, under the disguise is the peaceful David Sandoval, in every way hinders the march of Zack and his men to the place indicated by the map.  Towards the same goal are Gladys, Alfaro and Miss Cooper, from the Pinkerton agency hired by Zack to identify the man who hides behind the mask of Zorro. In order to avoid an uprising of the Indians, Zorro manages to derail the plan of Zack and at the same time to convince Gladys and Alfaro to give up the idea to steal the diamond. For her part, Ms. Cooper manages to discover the true identity of Zorro but David Sandoval, with a clever ruse, causes her to be considered it an error and mistake.
