When the hitman is kawaii

Teenage professional assassins Chisato (Akari Takaishi) and Mahiro (Saori Izawa) are suddenly ordered by their boss to become ordinary members of society and move in together to disguise their true identities. Their already unreasonable lives are now tangled up in tedious official business, absurd job interviews and roommate clashes. Tension starts to rise when Chisato easily adapts to more conventional channels of employment, while Mahiro remains unable to cope with interpersonal relations. But when Chisato gets into trouble with the yakuza, setting off a battle with the clan and its eccentric members, the duo will need to set their differences aside and join forces to defeat the gangsters. 

A rising star in the Japanese film industry, young director Yūgo Sakamoto has already won attention and praise for his films’ exquisite combination of brutality and ridiculousness. With just the right balance of blood, laughter and spectacular fight choreography, Baby Assassins has been a major hit in Japan and won’t let down international fans of the action genre!
