"Return To Paradise" is the 1998 movie about the moral dilemma that two young men must face as they find out that their buddy faces a death sentence - give up three years of their life or give up the life of their friend. They have eight days to decide. 

A couple of years earlier, John and Tony had left Lewis in the south east asia after having a great time and returned to the states. Now they find out through Beth that Lewis was arrested in Malaysia where he was tried and convicted as a drug dealer. The death sentence is scheduled in eight days unless one or both returns. One will get six years if only one returns and three years for each if they both return. 

Shot in Hong Kong, Macao, Thailand and Philadelphia (prison interiors).
