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. It also charts the charitable work of London-based, Pakistani- born, plastic surgeon Dr Mohammad Jawad, who strives to help these women put this horrific act behind them and move on with their lives.
