ALA KACHUU – TAKE AND RUN tells the story of a young Kyrgyz woman who becomes the victim of a bride kidnapping. The 48-minute drama revolves around Sezim (Alina Turdumamatova), a 19-year-old Kyrgyz woman, who wants to fulfill her dream of studying in Bischkek, the Kyrgyz capital.

However, she gets kidnapped by a group of young men and taken to the hinterland. There, she’s forced to marry a stranger. If she refuses the marriage, she is threatened with social stigmatization and exclusion. Torn between her desire for freedom and the constraints of Kyrgyz culture, Sezim desperately seeks a way out.
