A momentary act of revenge transformed the lives of two Indian women forever. After surviving an acid attack, while carrying scars of human brutality on their face, both Ritu and Faraha now have to navigate through a sea of odd currents daily, as they seek to rebuild their lives. By intertwining the shadows and lights, and hope and hopelessness in Ritu and Faraha’s life, Ayena becomes a mirror where we can also see our own reflections.
