Based on the true story of Henri Charriere, also known
as Papillon, which is French for 'butterfly' (the character
even sports a large tattoo of a butterfly). A petty criminal,
Papillon is wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to life
in a French penal colony in 'Guiane' (French Guiana, South
America). Papillon is determined to escape but attempt after
attempt meets with difficulty, resulting in eventual recapture.
He continues his attempts to escape despite incarcerations
in solitary confinement as punishment.
