Plot SummaryThis costume drama chronicles the decline and fall of the last Russian royal family, Czar Nicholas II and Czarina Alexandra -- from the birth of their hemophiliac son Alexis to the Bolshevik Revolution. | Empress Alexandra becomes involved with the occultist Rasputin, who exerts great influence over her when she rules the country during her husband's absence in World War I. Convinced that her son will die without Rasputin's continued magical presence, she becomes increasingly beholden unto him. Then, events take a bloody dramatic turn, as popular unrest and the political maneuvering of Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky lead to the Russian uprising, and the end of the Romanov reign.
|"Trotsky, you've been avoiding me!" ---- Lenin (Michael Bryant)|
