Welcome to the Moon 2087. With all the natural resources mined out years ago, the Moon has become the new Wild West. A place where money and the right contacts can get you anything you want and anything goes.

PLUTO NASH is an action/adventure comedy set on the Moon in the year 2087 starring Eddie Murphy as the title character, Pluto Nash, an audacious, successful owner of the hottest nightclub in town. Pluto finds himself in trouble when he refuses to sell his club to Mogan (Joe Pantoliano) the lunar gangster that is helping the mysterious Rex Crater mastermind a plan to take over the entire moon.

Joining Nash in the danger and lunacy are Dina Lake (Rosario Dawson), a beautiful earthling who has travelled to the moon to further her singing ambitions, and Pluto's bodyguard Bruno (Randy Quaid) - a robot quickly approaching obsolescence. Rounding out the cast are Rowland (Peter Boyle), a pool shark and Pluto's confidant; Flura (Pam Grier), Pluto's mother; and Tony Francis (Jay Mohr), Pluto's friend and an Italian singing sensation.
