(Love and Bullets)



The leader of a criminal organisation decides to change his life and, thanks to the help of his clever wife, desperately tries to cut ties with his past. A nurse with eyes as bright as starlight and a deadly hit man are struggling to seek balance between their past and an uncertain future.

Their stories develop in a mix of music and action, love and bullets.
