A Prayer Before Dawn

A Prayer Before Dawn brings the prison drama to new levels of intensity while sensitively portraying life in an extreme environment. We follow the compelling true story of Briton Billy Moore, a heroin addict who learned Muay Thai boxing after being sentenced to three years in a Thai prison for selling drugs. Unable to speak the language he struggles to survive and build real relationships in a reality few can imagine. Shot on location inside Nakhon Pathom prison in Thailand, the film lays bare the harsh conditions of life without sanitising or imposing judgement.
