Prison Fight

Prison Fight

Directed by Robert Pilichowski

This short documentary is a story of redemption and pride. Set in both Canada and Thailand, the film tells the story of Sean McNabb and Komkit Agorn Ketnawk, two men from opposite ends of the world with only one thing in common, the art of pugilism.

Sean has been fighting for only a few years. His brother was murdered in a domestic dispute and ever since then, he has turned to training himself as a way to deal with the loss. He lives in a low-income housing project, raising three children with his partner, Soraya.

Ketnawk on the other hand grew up poor and as long as he can remember, he has been involved in Muay Thai kickboxing. He would use his winnings to help his family pay for the food on the table. When fighting wasn’t enough to pay the bills, he turned to other forms of income and was arrested for drug trafficking at young age. He’s currently incarcerated in a maximum security prison in Thailand.
