Celebrated as Papillon - after the intricate butterfly tattoo emblazoned on his chest - petty criminal Henri Charriere (star of THE GREAT ESCAPE and THE GETAWAY, STEVE McQUEEN) is framed for murder and transported for life to the penal colony of French Guiana. Imprisoned on infamous Devil's Island, Papillon is obsessed with the idea of freedom. Together with fellow prisoner Louis Dega (Two-time Academy Award-winning actor DUSTIN HOFFMAN), he ceaselessly works on a means of escape, his spirit refusing to be broken by the savage and humiliating treatment of their captors. Based on a true story and the best-selling novel, PAPILLON is a celebrated cinema epic, the inspirational story of one man's unbreakable spirit and a powerful showcase for the talents of two great Hollywood actors.
