This is the remarkable true story of Billy Moore, a young English boxer incarcerated in two of Thailand's most notorious prisons.

Billy (Joe Cole) is quickly 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, 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.

Shot in an actual Thai prison with a cast of primarily real inmates, ‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ is a visceral, thrilling journey through an unforgettable hell on earth. It's a spare, brutal, well-crafted prison drama, anchored by an at-turns wildly aggressive and hauntingly vulnerable lead performance by Cole.
