Plot – In 1916 in St. Petersburg lived a young princess named Anastasia, daughter of the Romanov, dynasty which had been ruling Russia over the past 300 years. Returned from exile, the evil Rasputin had vowed to take revenge on the family. The revolution burst across the country and destroyed most of the Romanovs. With the help of the boy Dimitri, the empress mother Maria and her grandaughter flee to Paris. However, at the last moment Anastasia cannot join them, she loses her memory and at 18 she finds herself as an orphan named Anya, with a necklace that reads "Together in Paris." Anya wants to discover her identity. Meanwhile, Dimitri is working hard to find a girl who can convince the elderly Maria that Anastasia is still alive. He convinces Anya to pass herself off as Anastasia and together they arrive in Paris where they must persuade the grandmother, who at this point is disappointed after so many failed attempts. Overcoming her initial suspicion, Maria notices the string around the neck of Anya and understands that the true Anastasia has arrived. The night of her debut in society, Rasputin draws Anastasia into the gardens to kill her. Thanks to Dimitri's intervention, the situation is solved with the elimination of Rasputin. Anastasia and Dimitri start a new happy life together.
