After the death of his journalist brother, the life of Arsen – an ex-special forces soldier turned bodyguard – changes dramatically when it becomes clear that his brother’s death was no accident. He tracks and “liquidates” those responsible for his brother’s death, uncovering a ring of corruption that extends to the highest levels of society and government. As the liquidation continues, the powerful individuals involved become uneasy and hire the services of an international assassin, known as the Silent Killer (Vinnie Jones), to neutralize him. The Liquidator is the first international release from producers Kazakhfilm, Kazakhstan’s national film studio and Sataifilm.
