Summary The remarkable true story of Billy Moore, a young English boxer incarcerated in two of Thailand’s most notorious prisons.

Shot in a an actual Thai prison with a cast of primarily real inmates, A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN is a visceral, thrilling journey. Official Selection at the **Cannes Film Festival**.
