The Grand Ducal Coup has succeeded. In order to avoid revolution, Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich, the Tsar's brother, takes the reigns of the Government in Petrograd and declares himself regent with the support of all senior Grand Dukes. With a heavy heart, he sends his brother, wife and daughters into exile to England and becomes his nephew's tutor until he comes of age. Russia becomes a Constitutional Monarchy and revolution is avoided. Meanwhile, the Tsar's uncle, Grand Duke Paul who settled in Russia in 1914, after spending several years living in exile in Paris because of his scandalous marriage to a divorced woman, is adjusting to his old life. His children, Vladimir, an accomplished poet, Irina, and Natalia will have to settle into a new world, far from everything they have always known. They will have to navigate through life, love, friendship and heartbreak in a strange country with a new position, new people and new conventions.
