What is it about?

Pact of escape follows León Vargas and Rafael Jiménez, two political prisoners in the Santiago Public Prison who seek to escape from it along with 47 other inmates after being convicted of several attacks they carried out against the Chilean military dictatorship, specifically against the General Augusto Pinochet.

The synopsis that can be read on Amazon Prime Video refers to the prison break that inspired this film as “one of the most surprising of all time”, both for its magnitude and for the fact that it involved the collaboration of several people within and out of jail.


The movie Pact of escape is starring Benjamín Vicuña (Off the chart, Vis a Vis) and Roberto Farías (The club, My last round) who play León Vargas and Rafael Jiménez respectively, the two militants of the Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front who were the mastermind behind the plan to escape from the prison in which they were imprisoned.

They are joined by a cast of talented actors, including Francisca Gavilán (Violet went to heaven) and Amparo Noguera (A thief and his wife). Francisca plays Fabiola Pizarro, the defense attorney for political prisoners, while Amparo plays Paulina Baeza, Rafael Jiménez’s ex-wife, who plays an important role in the plan thanks to the help she can offer outside of prison. .
