Marty Faranan (Farrell) is a struggling writer in Los Angeles, California who dreams of finishing his screenplay, Seven Psychopaths. Marty's best friend, Billy Bickle (Rockwell), is an unemployed actor who makes a living by kidnapping dogs and collecting the owners' cash rewards for their safe return. His partner-in-crime is Hans Kieslowski (Walken), a religious man with a cancer-stricken wife, Myra. Billy helps Marty with Seven Psychopaths, suggesting he use the "Jack of Diamonds" killer, perpetrator of a recent double murder, as one of the seven "psychopaths" in his script. Marty writes a story for another psychopath, the "Quaker", who stalks his daughter's killer for decades, driving the killer to suicide and ultimately cutting his own throat to follow him to hell.

Carrying out orders to execute a priest, rookie hitman Ray accidentally also kills a young boy. He and his mentor Ken are sent to Bruges by their employer Harry, where they are to await further instructions.

As the movie opens, we see a doctor informing Donnelly (Gleeson) that his wife passed away at 3 o'clock in the morning. He brings the man to his wife's bedside to say his last goodbye, excusing himself presently by saying he's unusually busy: there'd been 2 cot deaths, and a woman shot so brutally by her son "she had no head left on her".
