In view of the universal top of the line autobiographic books "Papillon" and "Banco", PAPILLON takes after the epic story of Henri "Papillon" Charrière (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian black market who is encircled for murder and sentenced to life in the famous punitive province on Devil's Island. Resolved to recapture his opportunity, Papillon frames a far-fetched cooperation with idiosyncratic sentenced forger Louis Dega (Rami Malek), who in return for security, consents to fund Papillon's escape.
