Based on the memoir by Billy Moore, Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire’s A Prayer Before Dawn recounts the visceral journey through hell of a British drug-dealer who is arrested in Bangkok and sentenced to three years in one of Thailand’s most notorious prisons. Quickly thrown into a terrifying world of drugs and gang violence, he finds hope when the prison authorities allow him to take part in the Muay Thai boxing tournaments. Billy embarks on a relentless, action-packed journey from one savage fight to the next, stopping at nothing to do whatever he must to preserve his life and regain his freedom.
