Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) is a faded Hollywood actor best known for playing the superhero Birdman decades ago in a series of films. He is often tormented by the mocking, critical inner voice of Birdman, and frequently visualizes himself performing feats of levitation and telekinesis. The film opens with a quotation from Raymond Carver stating that the main fulfillment in life is related to having once been loved, then cuts to a dramatic atmospheric disturbance resembling a meteor descending in flames. The film then cuts to a surreal shot depicting Riggan as levitating in his stage room. Riggan hopes to reinvent his career by writing, directing, and starring in a Broadway production of a loosely based adaptation of Carver's short story "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love".

In 2003, Nathan Flomm (Larry David) is an opinionated, obnoxious business associate of a man, Will Haney, whose company is about to introduce a new electric car. Flomm strenuously objects to the car being named the Howard. He offends Haney, who is naming the car after his young son, Howard, whom Haney named after Howard Roark, hero of The Fountainhead. After Flomm accepts a flat buyout severance package to cut ties with the company, he becomes a ridiculed public figure when the Howard is a huge success, costing Flomm what would have been his share — a billion dollars.
