Editors Note
Note An abused albino boy is cursed as different when he is integrated with teens his own age at school. His classmates, teachers, and others around him are both inspired and terrified by the strange-looking boy who apparently possesses certain inexplicable powers.
Plot Summary
Summary Because teenager Jeremy Reed has skin that's literally as white as snow, everyone calls him "Powder". He also has extraordinary powers: telekinesis, telepathy, and an incredibly high IQ, a condition caused when lightning struck his mother during her pregnancy. She died after the accident, and since then Powder's grandfather has locked him in the basement, hiding him from all mankind. But after his guardian dies, the newly discovered lad goes to a school for troubled boys. Here, Powder's special gifts finally reveal themselves for better or for worse. Although two teachers and a pretty girl have befriended him, Powder will never enjoy an easy life, for he is truly a stranger in a strange land.
Reviews

USA Today "...Performed to the hilt by Flanery and filmed with conviction by Victor Salva..." 10/27/1995 p.4D
Variety "...[The] film features some fine performances, an imaginative premise and a couple of go-for-broke emotional scenes..." 10/30/1995
