In this drama, the lives of four people intersect on the night before Christmas. Former priest Charlie Bishop (Oscar winner Forest Whitaker) struggles with a past tragedy and the desire to take his own life. But he is unable to commit the act himself, so he tries offering strangers $50,000 to do it for him. A recently paroled ex-hit man (Ray Liotta) also wrestles with a painful past, but a recent diagnosis of terminal cancer makes his future certain. 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.
