The movie will tell the story of Pakistan’s most notorious serial killer who was accused and found guilty of sexually abusing and murdering more than 100 children in Lahore between the years 1998 to 1999. The case became even more disturbing as details emerged about how he not only killed the children but dismembered them and dissolved their bodies in acid. He was eventually caught and sentenced to death in the same way that he killed his victims.

We can’t wait to see what the movie has in store for us. We hope it also carries some awareness and lesson in addition to just depicting the story.
