Marius Illiesu along with Executive Prodcuer Monica Leon and Zachary Laoutides prepared for over a year to investigate stories of young children being used as assassins for the cartel.
"The true symbolism behind Devil in the Window lays in the fact that social privileges, power, and money are not guarantors for the most precious wealth a human being should aspire for; it’s soul. Marty’s story is a perfect example that monsters can be so easily bred when the heart is opened and fed with vengeance." Interview with Marius Illiescu
