THE TRUE STORY OF PAPILLON
The most incredible ever escape from hell story
“Papillon”, starring Steve Mc Queen 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 a 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.
