“Nine Bullets,” formerly known as “Gypsy Moon,” follows Gypsy Moon (Headey), a tough and sexy burlesque dancer by night, and an intellectual aspiring novelist by day. On the eve of her last dance, she must go on a nail-biting, action-packed ride across state lines to save a neighbor’s son (Vasquez), whose life is threatened by her ex-longtime lover (Worthington). She finds her real second chance at life in the love she feels for the child.
