Single mother Rose-Johnny (Jessica Biel) tries to support her son on a stripper's paycheck, but the boy is in a coma after an accident. Finally, there is Qwerty Dolittle (Eddie Redmayne), an awkward mortician, who is drawn to Rose-Johnny and is offered $50,000 by Charlie. Set on the dark streets of Los Angeles, POWDER BLUE also stars Kris Kristofferson, Lisa Kudrow, and Patrick Swayze.
