Los Niños Sicarios, the title of the film, refers to the child hitmen working for Mexican drug cartels. Along the Southwestern border states the most desired recruits are Mexican-American teenage boys. After 9 months of military training the boys are released back into U.S. communities and are ‘on call’ for specific targets. This is a day in the life of an American born child hitman or ‘Little Assassin.’
