Summary "Henri Charrière, called "Papillon" for the butterfly tattoo on his chest, was convicted in Paris in 1931 for a murder he did not commit. Sentenced to life imprisonment in the penal colony of French Guiana, he became obsessed with one goal: escape. After planning and executing a series of treacherous yet failed attempts over many years, he was eventually sent to the notorious Devil's Island prison, a place from which no one had ever escaped ... until Papillon. His flight to freedom remains one of the most incredible feats of human cunning, will, and endurance ever undertaken"--Container.
