What is the film about? The Tsarevich is based on the real events surrounding the Imperial family of Russia, in 1918, at the verge of their execution. The story takes place in the Ipatev house, a requisitioned villa that serves as prison for the Tsar and his family.  The Romanovs are being held captive by the secret police of the Bolsheviks, a communist party lead by Vladimir Lenin and under Yakov Yurovsky’s watch. Alexei, the only heir of the throne that suffers from hemophilia and therefore, lives a very intricate life, where nobody sees his inner valor and strength.

Why tell the Romanov’s’ story?
The Romanov’s story  is an extremely moving story that has never been told through the point of Alexei who was beloved and respected by all. Their tragic end deserves to be told so that we do not forget the fundaments of one of the most powerful country in the world. After the family was executed, the red army defeated the white army. Lenine was in power to create the USSR.
The Impact You will be transcended by this emotional, touching and inspiring story of a young boy, suffering from hemophilia that fights prejudice to defend the one he loves. It’s a story that touches everybody, having a great range of characters and emotional depth to it. The Tsarevich already raised interests in European and U.S markets and will be send to festivals around the world.
