The Escapist

Frank Perry (Brian Cox) is a lifer: in prison for the rest of his natural-born days. And he’s been perfectly willing to accept that…until now. A letter informs him his daughter is critically ill following an overdose. He must see her before it is too late and concocts a plan, but he needs help. He assembles a motley crew of unlikely companions to help with his intricate scheme. A fatal encounter puts the escape in jeopardy, and Frank must lead the group on a truly hair-raising escape.
