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

The One Movie That Needed A Sequel
This film is fantastic from start to finish.
I love the intrigue and the circumstances. I dig the sexual tension. I love the violence and I certainly am amazed at the originality.
I would have loved to watch a sequel where they are an official couple travelling hand in hand or like Kill Bill she is now a house wife and in his absence slays. The one time I would have been interested in a sequel!
