A prisoner detained on a remote island plots his escape. A remake of the 1973 film 'Papillon'. A new vision of a clasic film by the director Michael Noer ('Key House Mirror') 2015 and 'Nordvest (Northwest)' 2013. Based on the international best-selling autobiographic books 'Papillon' and 'Banco', the film follows the epic story of Henri 'Papillon' Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who is framed for murder and condemned to life in the notorious penal colony on Devil?s Island. Determined to regain his freedom, Papillon forms an unlikely alliance with a convicted counterfeiter Louis Dega (Rami Malek), who in exchange for protection, agrees to finance Papillon?s escape.
