They all share the same trauma, from the hand of a husband, a neighbor or a rejected lover who stole their faces with a jet of acid over jealousy or rejection. A tragedy that affects thousands of women and that vigourusly denounces Valerie Khan. This French woman married to a Pakistani is leading the fight on all fronts: legal, political and medical. Her goal: that honor crimes get penalized and the possession of acid regulated. Meanwhile, she tries to bring a team of British surgeons across to give beauty back to the young women molested.
