Inspired by JPP’s first client, Zulifqar, who was executed after spending 17 years in jail, No Time to Sleep aims to portray the last moments of emotions prisoners go through, based accounts of prison staff and family members.
Having spent a major part of his life in jail, Zulfiqar didn’t only teach hundreds of prisoners but also secured 33 diplomas himself during imprisonment.
