When Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard is laid up in Hospital, friends & nurses try to find a way to distract him. Finally, they get him intrigued by the mystery of whether Richard III actually was responsible for the death of his two nephews.

What follows is an amusing look at how the accepted History that we all learn in school is often either misleading or flat out wrong.
