Her face was her fortune - until they scarred her for life. Marla Hanson's dreams of becoming a top New York model were shattered when she was attacked and slashed across the face, sustaining wounds requiring nearly 150 stitches. Marla's modelling career was finished, but her ordeal had only just begun. When her case came to court, the defence attorney tore into her, accusing her of being a prostitute and using sex to further her career. But Marla fought back against these accusations, and her exceptional courage made her not only America's most famous victim but a champion for others who had suffered in the same way.
