Mathilda, a 12-year-old girl, is reluctantly taken in by Léon, a professional assassin, after her family is murdered. An unusual relationship forms as she becomes his protégée and learns the assassin's trade.
After her father, step-mother, step-sister and little brother are killed by her father's employers, the 12-year-old daughter of an abject drug dealer manages to take refuge in the apartment of a professional hitman who at her request teaches her the methods of his job so she can take her revenge on the corrupt DEA agent who ruined her life by killing her beloved brother.Written by

We need a follow-up to the original and intriguing story of an assassin who takes a young girl under his wings and she ends up providing him with emotional support.
I love action movies where people are not thrown a parsec into the air, land and are good to go.
In the follow-up Mathilda has given Leon a boy and a girl and only one of them is following Leon's path.
