The Swan in "Muallaf".

Her name is Rohani. She is 21.

The only friend she has in the whole wide world is Rohana, her 14 year old sister.

They escape their abusive father -- Rohani's shaved head was forced upon her -- and meet with 28-year old Brian Goh.

Brian himself was severely punished as a child for exploring his own body in ways which are taboo to the Catholic faith.

Together the girls and Brian learn to confront old ghosts and lay them to rest.

This is "Muallaf". A story of old hurts, new friendships, and the painful yet beautiful journey to forgiveness.
