Summary In Pakistan veils hide one of the country's most terrible secrets. Driven by revenge, jealousy, obsession or sexual non co-operation, some men subject their wives to horrific attacks with the acid that has become freely available in the country. Completely disfigured, the victims are often ostracized by their friends and families and become prisoners in their own homes. This chilling doc is a terrifying insight into the shattered lives of these women
