Propriétaire d'une galerie d'art à Los Angeles, Susan Morrow mène une vie professionnelle sans passion, tandis que son mari Hutton, homme d'affaires, la trompe avec d'autres femmes. Un jour, elle reçoit le manuscrit d'un roman écrit par son ex-mari Edward Sheffield accompagné d'une invitation lors d'une prochaine visite de ce dernier à Los Angeles. Susan commence la lecture du roman intitulé Animaux nocturnes (Nocturnal Animals dans la version originale), qu'il lui a dédié, en nommant le livre d'après un surnom qu'il lui avait donné. Le livre débute quand le personnage principal, Tony Hastings, part sur la route en voiture en vacances avec son épouse Laura et leur fille India, quand un soir ils sont contraints de s'arrêter sur une route de l'ouest du Texas par un groupe de trois voyous locaux, menés par Ray Marcus. Après un échange animé entre les Hastings et Marcus, ce dernier et ses amis emmènent de force Laura et India, face à l'impuissance de Tony, qui doit accompagner Lou, l'un des trois amis de Marcus, jusqu'au bout d'une route où il est abandonné. Lorsque Lou et Ray tentent de le retrouver, Tony parvient à se cacher et à se rendre dans une ferme des environs afin d'appeler la police. Choquée par le contenu sombre et l'émotion brute du roman, Susan se remémore sa rencontre avec Edward et de son mariage avec ce dernier, union à laquelle était opposée la mère de Susan, Anne Sutton, affirmant qu'Edward n'était pas digne des affections de Susan et que, à cause de sa vision romantique du monde, il manquait de volonté pour atteindre ses objectifs. Susan, découvrant l'infidélité d'Hutton, continue la lecture du roman.

Zoe wakes one night after having a nightmare of the supposed monsters she calls 'Breathers' and believes the shelter is in danger. Ray and Claire convince Zoe that they are safe and there is nothing to fear. Zoe also talks to her doll, Olive, for comfort and support and sees Olive as a real person. The family have difficulty coping in their cramped environment but manage by having a set of rules, such as always keeping calm and never leaving the shelter. The three soon discover at dinner that their already dwindling rations are also being consumed by a rat and try to find and kill it. The family also discover that the rat managed to sneak into the shelter through another opening other than the main barricaded hatch. They find a small air duct but Ray reassures Zoe that the breathers wouldn't be able to fit through the duct. It is revealed that the they have taken shelter for 301 days and that Ray believes they're most likely the only ones left alive.

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".

An ambitious, up-and-coming reporter Nina Dunham has much success with her interview with underage video chat-room stripper Kyle. Kyle, a runaway, works in a whole "house" with other chat-room strippers under his boss, Harvey. However, the FBI wants her to reveal his address in order to shut down the whole website that hosts the web-rooms. Since she has paid him in order to make initial contact, she may have broken the law, making the police and her boss put pressure on her to cooperate. Nina wants to save him from the business, yet fears losing his trust in the process. Kyle reluctantly gives her the address, and somehow, Harvey is tipped off and the entire house flees. When Nina discovers this, she follows them to the motel where they're staying, and asks Kyle to leave with her. At first, Kyle is hopeful for the future and willing, but when Nina is hesitant to guarantee him safe haven in her home, he resists. Harvey watches the argument, then slaps Nina. The entire group of chat-room strippers leave and Nina drives away in tears.
