Singer Anthony "Treach" Criss of the band Naughty by Nature stars in this urban action-crime thriller as Malik "The Ghost" Bishop, a former street gang member turned top assassin. Assigned by his boss to stake out and kill the man's innocent girlfriend (Kent Masters King), Malik falls for his target, forcing him to reflect on his violent past, which began in his childhood when he witnessed the murder-suicide of his parents. He's led to make the fateful choice of turning on his superiors instead of carrying out the slaying, a decision that results in a brutal showdown. Love and a Bullet co-stars Bud Sabatino, Freez Luv, and Walter Jones. The film inspired an animated web series entitled "The Contract."
