Prayer Before Dawn, A: Sauvaire’s Tale of Young Boxer Incarcerated in Thiland’s Prison

Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire ‘s A Prayer Before Dawn tells the remarkable true story of Billy Moore (played by Joe Cole), a young boxer incarcerated in two of Thailand’s most notorious prisons, thrown into a terrifying world of drugs and gang violence.

But when the prison authorities allow him to take part in the Muay Thai boxing tournaments, he realizes this might be his chance to get out.

Billy embarks on a relentless journey from one savage fight to the next, doing whatever he must to preserve his life and regain his freedom.

Shot in actual Thai prison with a cast of primarily real inmates, A Prayer Before Dawn is a visceral, thrilling journey through hell.
