In a hotel room on the Mexican-American border sits a sicario, his face shrouded in a black veil. A sicario is a professional killer.

This individual grew up in poverty and has kidnapped, tortured and murdered for both drug traffickers and governments. Today he relates his twenty years of activity. This movie is a confession based on the article written by Charles Bowden for Harper's Magazine in 2009 entitled "The Sicario".
