Thorn (Mul) is the story of a young girl who contracted leprosy at age nine. She was given the customary treatment – of being taken to a Home and left there, quarantined, with the other patients for several years until she got cured and was allowed to go out in the world. What awaits her there forms the rest of the story.
Narrated in a style that captures the innocence of the young protagonist, Mul captures the experience completely, without any false mixtures of sentiment or valour. It is just her story told as it is.
