Every year in Pakistan, at least 100 people are victimised by brutal acid attacks. The majority are women, and many more cases go unreported. With little or no access to reconstructive surgery, survivors are physically and emotionally scarred, while many reported assailants - typically a husband or someone close to the victim - are let go with minimal punishment from the state. Saving Face tells the stories of two acid-attack survivors - Zakia and Rukhsana - and their arduous attempts to bring their assailants to justice.
