"Papillon", starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, was a major box office success when it came out in 1973 and is still viewed today as the best ever "escape from hell" scenario.
It was actually based on the true story of 2 hoodlums locked away in a gruesome French penal colony lost in the middle of the South American jungle.
This docu-fiction relates the extraordinary adventures of these men from their incredible escape to their spectacular recognition in Hollywood.
