After fighting to help California become the 31st state of the Union, Zorro (Banderas) must live up to the promise he made his wife Elena (Zeta-Jones) � to give up his secret identity and live a normal life as Alejandro de la Vega. When he hesitates, it threatens to tear them apart.

And only Zorro can stop it.
