The Lost Princess is a fictional film based on the Russian Princess Anastasia and the circumstances surrounding her disappearance and death. In the film she has escaped from Russia to Goole where she is subsequently murdered.

The film uses animation, intertitles, and visual techniques from the Silent Era of moviemaking in its modern production. The original footage was shot on super 8mm film, and the final film was edited using contemporary post production techniques.
