GRAB AND RUN is a newly-released documentary by Roser Corella about Kyrgyzstan that gained its independence in 1991 and has been experiencing revival of Ala-Kachuu practice, which translates as "grab and run" - the practice of bride kidnapping. A big number of Kyrgyz women are married after being kidnapped by the men who become their husbands. Some escape after violent ordeals, but most are persuaded to stay by tradition and fear of scandal.
