The true story of boxer Billy Moore, convicted to three years imprisonment for drug possession in one of Thailand’s most sordid prisons. Noticed for his physical capacities, he is forced to participate in Muaï-Thai tournaments organised by the wardens.

A naturally muscular adaptation of this incredible story by the director of the already hard hitting Johnny Mad Dog and Punk, that immerses us into hellish prison life with a thai boxing background. The muscular wedding of Midnight Express and Raging Bull, amazingly played by Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Green Room) who exudes with a rage to survive every second.  One of this year’s edition’s most striking films!
