Synopsis

When Sheriff Barnum investigates the death of an elderly rural resident, he discovers a teenage grandson living in the basement. Raised by his grandparents, he has experienced the world only through books, never leaving the family farm. He is sent to a state home for boys where he has trouble fitting in socially. His odd appearance and unusual abilities cause the small town residents to fear and ridicule him. However, not all are afraid. Some begin to view his potential and gifts with wonderment.

Dove Review

“Powder” was kind of an odd movie but somewhat interesting as well. The one theme to be aware of is everyone being connected because of the energy that we all possess. There are a couple of parts in which “Powder” can read thoughts and transfer feelings. All in all, it was a clean movie with an ok storyline. The words “stupid” and “moron” are used.
