Now the subject of a major motion picture, A Prayer Before Dawn: A Nightmare in Thailand, is the true story of one man’s fight for survival inside a Thai prison.
Billy Moore travelled 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 in Thailand until he was eventually arrested and imprisoned in Klong Prem, a place where life has no value. In order to survive, Moore became a Muay Thai fighter.
A Prayer Before Dawn: A Nightmare in Thailand is no ordinary prison memoir; it’s the story of one man’s struggle to survive in one of the world’s toughest prisons. A man who has nothing to lose, has everything to fight for.
