While in prison, Dantès befriends Abbé Faria, an old priest who teaches Dantès the arts of language, culture, and science, and tells Dantès about a hidden treasure. When Faria passes away, Dantès makes plans to escape from jail, find the treasure, and seek revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment.
