Bishop Lavis, a community tortured by gangsters. Day after day people fight the gangs infesting their streets and killing their children. Bullets over Bishop Lavis is the story of these people. Jerome and Ronnie grew up as blood brothers... street brothers. One night a shooting changed everything. Ronnie pulled the trigger, but it was Jerome’s face Malaysia saw last. Seven years later Jerome is released looking for his traitor blood brother and discovers that things have changed in Bishop Lavis. This is where the story begins. Ronnie is now a successful criminal lawyer and Jerome an ex-con. Entangled in a new life, haunting secrets and a ghost from the past Ronnie now has to make a decision that will change their lives. Jerome is back to complete the last part of their pact.
