The lives of several strangers are brought together through chance on a Christmas Eve in Los Angeles. There's the mortician, the mobster, the transvestite prostitute, the suicidal ex-priest, the strip club owner and, of course, the stripper with a sick kid. The indie flick "Powder Blue" came and went in 2009 without much fanfare (outside of the fact that Jessica Biel played the stripper), but it was certainly looking to cash in on the box office and Oscar success of "Crash," which featured a racist cop, a gangster, a Hollywood director, a district attorney and no strippers brought together by chance in Los Angeles.
