He agreed to protect Dega from attackers trying to get his charger. Upon arriving at the penal colony, Papillon claimed to be ill and was sent to the infirmary. They planned to use a sailboat acquired with the help of the associated leper colony at Pigeon Island.

Banco: The Further Adventures of Papillon

The Maroni River carried them to the Atlantic Ocean , and they sailed to the northwest, reaching Trinidad. Nearing the Colombian coastline, the escapees were sighted. The wind died and they were captured and imprisoned again.

In Colombian prison, Papillon joined with another prisoner to escape. Some distance from the prison, the two went their separate ways. Papillon entered the Guajira peninsula , a region dominated by Native Americans.


He was assimilated into a coastal village whose specialty was pearl diving. There he married two teenage sisters and impregnated both. After spending several months in relative paradise, Papillon decided to seek vengeance against those who had wronged him.

Soon after leaving the village, Papillon was captured and imprisoned at Santa Marta , then transferred to Barranquilla. There, he was reunited with Clousiot and Maturette. Papillon made numerous escape attempts from this prison, all of which failed. He was eventually extradited to French Guiana.

Clousiot and Maturette were given the same sentence.

An escape attempt was foiled by an informant whom Papillon stabbed to death. Papillon had to endure another 19 months of solitary confinement. His original sentence of eight years was reduced after Papillon risked his life to save a girl caught in shark-infested waters. After French Guiana officials decided to support the pro- Nazi Vichy Regime , the penalty for escape attempts was death, or capital punishment. Papillon decided to feign insanity in order to be sent to the asylum on Royal Island.

Insane prisoners could not be sentenced to death for any reason, and the asylum was not as heavily guarded as Devil's Island. He collaborated on another escape attempt but it failed; the other prisoner drowned when their boat was destroyed against rocks. Papillon nearly died as well.

Papillon returned to the regular prisoner population on Royal Island after being "cured" of his mental illness. Papillon studied the waters and discovered possibilities at a rocky inlet surrounded by a high cliff.

He noticed that every seventh wave was large enough to carry a floating object far enough out into the sea that it would drift toward the mainland. He experimented by throwing sacks of coconuts into the inlet.

He found another prisoner to accompany him, a pirate Sylvain. He had sailed in southeast Asia, where he was known to raid ships, killing everyone aboard for their money and goods.

The two men jumped into the inlet, using sacks of coconuts for flotation. The seventh wave carried them out into the ocean.

After days of drifting under the relentless sun, surviving on coconut pulp, they made landfall at the mainland. Sylvain sank in quicksand after having abandoned his coconut sack.

On the mainland, Papillon encountered Cuic Cuic, the brother of Chang. Cuic Cuic had built a hut on an "island" of solid ground surrounded by quicksand; he depended on a pig to find the safe route over the quicksand. The men and the pig made their way to El Dorado, a small mining town near the Gran Sabana region.

Surviving horrible conditions there, and finding diamonds, Papillon was eventually released. He gained Venezuelan citizenship and celebrity status a few years later. Differences include a section of the movie set in the mainland penal colony. This does not occur in the book. The film received largely positive reviews.
