Two Bullets offers a rollercoaster of emotions as it follows the story of Matteo, a jeweler with a shop in a small town, and his family, the Belmontes. He is tender and modest. His goal is to provide a good life for his wife Christine, and daughter. One fateful day, destiny turns his life upside down.
As one thief arrives to the shop and points his gun to Christine, demanding all the money and jewels on display, Matteo decides enough is enough.
