A Prayer Before Dawn

Based on the autobiographical novel by Billie Moore this film follows the life story of a talented English boxer who is incarcerated in a Thai prison for dealing drugs. Amidst terrible circumstances he finds his only way to escape: he starts Thai boxing.
Billie Moore wants to start a career in Thailand, but unfortunately he is a drug addict and he also occupies himself with dealing drugs. The police arrests him and soon he finds himself in the most brutal prison of Thailand surrounded by a bunch of cruel fellow prisoners. Billie must go through hell and fight his addiction and also he must find a way to restart his life: Thai box becomes a tool for redemption. It is not an easy film to watch as we get a rather realistic representation of human suffering and also a good amount of violence. The fact that we don't see subtitles during Thai dialogues helps us to understand the way how lost a foreigner must feel in this exotic and cruel environment.
