It was the night of 16 July, 1918 that Tsar Nikolas II, his family and servants were assassinated in Ekaterinburg without investigation and court decisions. Several decades passed and a former convict and long stay patient of the mental hospital, who claims to be the assassin, tells about the events of that horrible night.
