À Hollywood, dans les années 1950, Eddie Mannix travaille durement à la production pour le célèbre studio américain Capitol Pictures. Il officie également comme fixeur, sa pire activité : en l'espace d'une journée, il va devoir régler les problèmes en tout genre des stars, ainsi que retrouver la plus grosse star du studio, Baird Whitlock, qui a disparu en plein tournage du péplum Hail, Caesar !, kidnappé par un groupe de militants communistes. Il gère à la fois plein de petits tracas : le réalisateur exigeant Laurence Laurentz, qui n’apprécie guère qu’on lui ait attribué le jeune espoir du western comme tête d’affiche de son prochain drame psychologique ; les rivalités entre deux chroniqueuses ennemies qui sont également des sœurs jumelles ; la réputation de l'actrice DeeAnna Moran la reine du ballet nautique... Eddie Mannix sort ainsi ces acteurs du pétrin où ces derniers tombent avec facilité, mais doit aussi gérer en parallèle sa vie de famille ainsi que la société Lockheed qui souhaite l'engager. Une journée qui s'annonce mouvementée et pénible pour Eddie Mannix.

Gil Pender, a successful but creatively unfulfilled Hollywood screenwriter, and his fiancée, Inez, are in Paris, vacationing with Inez's wealthy, conservative parents. Gil is struggling to finish his first novel, centered on a man who works in a nostalgia shop. Inez dismisses his ambition as a romantic daydream and encourages him to stick with lucrative screenwriting. Gil is considering moving to Paris (which he notes, much to the dismay of his fiancée, is at its most beautiful in the rain). Inez is intent on living in Malibu. By chance, they are joined by Inez's friend Paul who is described as both pedantic and a pseudo-intellectual, and who speaks with great authority but questionable accuracy on the history and art of Paris. Paul contradicts a tour guide at the Rodin Museum, and insists that his knowledge of Rodin's relationships is more accurate than that of the tour guide. Inez admires him; Gil finds him insufferable.

The teenage members of a group of self-proclaimed pacifists decide to carry guns. They call themselves The Dandies. Their club is assembled from the young misfits in a fictional small American mining town, Electric Park. It is started after the main character, Dick Dandelion (Jamie Bell), buys what he thinks is a toy gun as a gift. His co-worker tells him the gun is real, and the two start shooting and studying in their spare time. They later recruit other outcasts, young men (and one young woman) who do not, or cannot, work in the mine, including one boy in leg braces and his younger brother Freddie.
