Two brothers, Billy (Claudio Undari) and Dan (Paul Piaget), head to California, determined to hunt down and kill Zorro to avenge the death of their brother.
Their ploy, Billy will dress up as Zorro and commit a variety of atrocities, hopefully drawing the real Zorro out of retirement.
The real Zorro is Don Jose de la Torre (Frank Latimore), the richest man in California. His fiance Maria (Maria Luz Galicia) doesn’t want to see Zorro resurrected. She wants to marry and live a quiet life.
Don Jose isn’t fond of donning the mask again either.
But when Billy and Dan have trouble learning the identity of Zorro, they start capturing and threatening those who might be able to provide the answers.
