Based on the international best-selling autobiographic books Papillon and Banco, the film follows the epic story of Henri “Papillon” Charrière (Charlie Hunnam, KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD), 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, SHORT TERM 12, upcoming BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY), who in exchange for protection, agrees to finance Papillon’s escape.
