Anastasia was a young girl living what appeared to be a fairy tale like.  The daughter of Tsar Nicholas of Russia, she was a actual princess. Her family traveled around Russia showing off the beautiful princess dresses in the finest clothes.  Anastasia's brother has a very painful illness and the family hides that fact from the public.  The times are not good.  There is great poverty in the country and the people have become desperate.  The Tsar's power is weakening and beautiful little Anatasia is in danger.  When Germany declares war on Russia, the world changes for all involved.
