Chok Dee The KickboxerAvailable to download or to rent/buy on DVD from 26th May 2008
Dida Diafat, a French born boxing champion, plays Ryan in an action packed story based on his own life experiences as the first Westerner to win the Thai kickboxing championships.
Ryan is a rebellious punk whose time in prison is about to come to an end. During his time behind bars, he was taught the deadly art of Thai boxing by fellow con Jean. The action hurtles between Paris and Bangkok as Ryan attempts to train as a professional boxer. However as a foreigner, Thai athletes treat him as an outsider to this highly respected sport. Despite this, he proves his worth through intensive training and sheer determination to show that even a Westerner can compete. Along the way he meets Kim, Jean’s long lost daughter who takes a shine to him, and a variety of ruffians and criminals who threaten to derail his commitment to the sport. A gripping true-life story that follows the rise of a jailbird thug to world renowned boxer, 'Chok Dee' is an action-packed fight fest where throwing in the towel is not an option
