Angela Bassett stars in this powerful drama set in the Deep South in the early '60s. Ruby Delacroix (Bassett) operates a rough-and-tumble night spot in Louisiana. Between running her business, raising a teenage daughter, and trying to keep tabs on her unfaithful husband, Ruby's life hardly needs any more excitement. However, temptation presents itself in the form of Billy (Kevin Anderson), a white singer who is booked into the club. Ruby and Billy fall into a passionate affair, which proves to be a dangerous thing in the desegregated South. Produced for the Showtime premium cable network, Ruby's Bucket of Blood also features Glenn Plummer, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Jurnee Smollett.
