Reporter Lucy Ash (not pictured...) travels to Chechnya to investigate the practice of bride stealing. It's not as comical as it sounds. Young women are being kidnapped from the street and, within days, married to men they may never have met. Although officially disapproved of, this centuries-old tradition is flourishing. From the moment a young woman is snatched, to her wedding one week later, Lucy follows the twists and turns as two families struggle to negotiate a compromise. Lucy is also with the mullah (seriously) whose job it is to arbitrate between the two families and prevent the incident spilling into bloodshed. After a week of tense negotiations she finally attends the colourful wedding celebrations where it seems there are as many guns as guests.
