    What a brave woman!
    We lose hope so easily, and look at her, strong! Very sad, very disturbing yet such a hopeful story.
    My respects to this woman
    And to all such acid attack survivors across the globe
    As for the filmmaker, she has so beautifully portrayed a story so horrifying that it deserves an applause. It is bit shallow to comment on technical aspects of a docufiction when the story is so deep and disturbing. But lets try. Great colours, soft paced and well-placed scenes, especially the opening scene, and very well chosen frames.

    All the best to dear Sona Moghadam!
