Bangkok Hilton is a three-part Australian mini-series, made in 1989 by Kennedy Miller Productions and directed by Ken Cameron. The title of the mini-series is, in the story, the nickname of a fictional Bangkok prison in which the protagonist is imprisoned.

Plot

Katrina Stanton (Nicole Kidman), is a sheltered young Australian heiress who embarks on an international quest to find her father, Hal Stanton (Denholm Elliott). Hal had been a POW in World War II (as had Denholm Elliott), imprisoned in a Bangkok prison.

She is unable to track down her father. While planning her return to Australia from London, Katrina is befriended by Arkie Ragan, a young photographer who becomes her lover and traveling companion. Leaving Bangkok together after a stopover, Katrina is arrested at the airport for drug smuggling and Arkie disappears. The heroin was planted in her luggage by Arkie, a drug smuggler who was using her as an unwitting mule to carry the drugs out of Thailand.

Katrina is imprisoned in a squalid, overcrowded Bangkok prison nicknamed "The Bangkok Hilton". There she meets another Australian woman, Mandy Engels, a heroin addict also imprisoned for drug trafficking. Mandy had used her mentally retarded brother Billy to carry her drugs as they passed through airport customs but the drugs were detected, and both were sentenced to death for drug trafficking. Billy is housed in the men's section of the "Bangkok Hilton" complex.

After the arrest Hal is tracked down. By this time he has lapsed into alcoholism and seems on the verge of a melancholic demise. It transpires he had been imprisoned in the same jail that now holds his daughter, and he becomes his daughter's last hope.
