Every year in Pakistan more than 100 people, most of them women, are known to be victims of acid attacks, while numerous other cases go unreported. With little or no access to reconstructive surgery, survivors are left physically and emotionally scarred. This extended version of an Oscar-winning film follows pioneering British plastic surgeon Mohammad Jawad as he travels to the country to treat two victims, 39-year-old Zakia and 23-year-old Rukhsana, who were both maimed by their husbands.
