In Mexico, SICARIO means hitman.
When FBI agent Kate Macer (Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find causes shockwaves on a personal and global level. Kate is recruited to join a covert black ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Del Toro) along with shadowy agent Matt Graver (Brolin).
Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, clandestine American spies and thousands of innocents. The jagged line of the U.S. and Mexican border is now awash with some of the most pressing issues of our time: drugs, terror, illegal immigration, corruption and an escalating swathe of violence that has left people on both sides frightened and vigilant.
