Recounts the incredible tale of British-Australian drug smuggler David McMillan, the only man ever to escape from Bangkok's Klong Prem prison — The Bangkok Hilton. Extremely intelligent and charming, McMillan came from a privileged background but chose a life of crime, which earned him a spot on Interpol's Top Ten Most Wanted list. His partner in crime was also the love of his life — Clelia Vigano. Together McMillan and Vigano were an unstoppable force — or so they thought.
