Take a look to the first official title treatment of A Prayer Before Dawn, the upcoming biography prison drama thriller movie directed by French Filmmaker Jean-Stephane Sauvaire based on a script by Jonathan Hirschbein and Nick Saltres and starring Joe Cole:
“In Klong Prem there are ten rules. If you break them you will almost certainly die. If you don’t break them you will definitely die. This is the true story of Billy Mooreʼs incarceration in one of Thailand’s most barbaric and deadly prisons where life has no value – Klong Prem, the notorious Bangkok Hilton.
Refusing to die, Billy masters the lethal martial art of Muay Thai Boxing. If he can survive the ring, he can survive anything. A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN is the shocking story of a manʼs descent into hell and his incredible journey to redemption.”
