Publisher Description

A Prayer before Dawn is the true story of one man’s fight to survive inside Klong Prem prison, the notorious Bangkok Hilton. Billy Moore traveled to Thailand to escape a life of drug addiction and alcoholism. He managed to overcome his inner demons for a time, but relapsed after trying ya ba, a highly addictive form of methamphetamine. Moore’s life quickly descended into chaos, drug dealing, and violence until he was eventually arrested and imprisoned in Klong Prem, a place where life has no value. A Prayer before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it’s the story of one man’s struggle to survive in one of the world’s toughest prisons. It’s also a story of redemption in the most unlikely of places.

“[A] Cannes hidden Gem: Joe Cole survives a Thai prison in A Prayer before Dawn. French director Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire traveled to Thailand to tell the real-life story of a British convict turned Muay Thai champion who hones his skills behind bars…Based on Moore’s book about his time in one of Thailand’s most brutal prisons, Klong Prem, aka the notorious ‘Bangkok Hilton.’”

— Hollywood Reporter 


  • “A Prayer before Dawn is—at one and the same time—a true story, a prison drama, a survival movie, a desperate love story, and an extraordinary tale of redemption. Above all, it is a poignant and uniquely human story.”

    — Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, film director
  • “With a clear hierarchy within the inmates, crooked guards all around, and a heightened sense of danger lurking, Billy struggles with both his addiction to heroin and getting into this place riddled with unhinged individuals. When the opportunity arises to train again and do what he loves, it may be the only thing that can save Billy from truly breaking.”
