What do you get when you mix violent bookmarkers, boxing promoters with no scruples, and Russian gansters? You get the story behind Snatch. This fast paced story involves the robbery of a diamond in London, the execution of a few bookies, and the failed efforts of some small time gangsters. When the diamond is stolen, the original thieves plan to pass it along to their boss, but they run into a few problems along the way. Thanks to their underdeveloped ability to keep quiet, Russian gangsters find out about the diamond and take it from them. Meanwhile, the diamond is promised to some bookies in the boxing world in exchange for someone's life. The diamond passes between thieves over and over again with a trail of dead bodies behind. Finally, it gets back to the original thieves and their boss.
