L'univers de Star Wars est amorcé avec le conflit entre la République galactique et la Confédération des systèmes indépendants, alliance de planètes séparatistes. Cette confédération entraîne des dirigeants de la République dans des affaires ingérables à cause des manigances du Chancelier Suprême Palpatine, chef d'État de la République, qui dit servir la démocratie tout en visant secrètement à établir un empire. Pour rétablir la paix, les Jedi combattent les ennemis de la République, sans savoir que les deux camps sont manipulés par les Seigneurs Sith (Palpatine étant en réalité le Seigneur Sith Dark Sidious). Les Jedi, comme les Sith, sont sensibles à la Force, une capacité d'origine physiologique qui permet à leurs détenteurs d'acquérir certains pouvoirs surnaturels.

Divorcé de Bobbie Jo, il s'occupe dès qu'il peut de sa fille Sadie, qui participe à des concours de beauté pour enfants. Jimmy est engagé sur un chantier en Caroline du Nord, sur le circuit Charlotte Motor Speedway. Mais il est licencié en raison d'une blessure non déclarée au genou. Très remonté et sans un sou, il convainc son frère Clyde, ancien soldat en Irak et amputé d'un bras, de commettre le braquage de la chambre forte du circuit, équipée de tubes pneumatiques. Pour mener à bien leur plan, ils s'associent au spécialiste des chambres fortes Joe Bang, pourtant incarcéré à Monroe. Ce dernier exige que ses deux frères, Fish et Sam, soient aussi de la partie. Les frères Logan peuvent aussi compter sur leur sœur, Mellie, qui tient un salon de coiffure. Cette petite équipe va donc commettre ce braquage sur la légendaire course de NASCAR Coca-Cola 600, durant le Memorial Day.

Le film montre sept journées de la vie de Paterson, chauffeur de bus vivant à Paterson, ville ouvrière du New Jersey. Il mène une vie réglée, paisible, harmonieuse. Il se lève sans réveil-matin, entre 6 h 11 et 6 h 15 (en réalité jusqu'à 6 h 30). Il conduit son bus, observant l'animation des rues, captant amusé les conversations de ses passagers... et voit des jumeaux partout. Il déjeune sur un banc, face au pont Chasm et aux chutes de la rivière Passaic. Il profite de cette pause pour écrire des vers dans son carnet secret. Car il rédige des poèmes inspirés de sa vie et de ses rencontres. Il décèle de la poésie dans la routine, dans les rituels et les décors, dans la banalité de menus incidents, dans les paroles des humains qu'il côtoie. Ses vers libres chantent « les petits riens du quotidien, des choses ordinaires comme ces boîtes d'allumettes désuètes qui traînent sur le bar de sa cuisine. » Le soir, Paterson retrouve sa maison, sa compagne Laura. Il va promener leur bouledogue, s'arrête dans un bar où il croise des amis et boit une bière.

His previous documentary about military-industrial complex titled The Power Elite was based on C. Wright Mills's sociological theory. Both Josh and Cornelia are struggling to try to have children, although Cornelia is reluctant due to her miscarrying the past two pregnancies. After finishing a lecture at the college where he works, Josh is approached by Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby Massey (Amanda Seyfried), a young couple who invite him and Cornelia out to dinner, the former claiming to be a fan of both his works and the works of his accomplished documentary filmmaker father-in-law, Leslie Breitbart (Charles Grodin). Josh is immediately awestruck by Jamie and Darby's non-conservative outlook on life, and he and Cornelia begin spending more time with them and indulging in their activities.

When Mina (Alba Rohrwacher) and Jude (Adam Driver) first meet, it's under the worst of circumstances; Mina finds herself accidentally trapped in a bathroom with Jude, who is suffering from food poisoning induced diarrhea. Despite this awkward first encounter, the two form a seemingly strong relationship. However when Mina announces that she's going to return to Italy Jude initiates a sexual encounter that ends with him cumming inside of her, despite Mina specifically requesting otherwise. Mina becomes pregnant as a result of the encounter, which further ties her to Jude and prevents her from traveling to Italy. The pregnancy ends up putting a large amount of strain on their relationship since Mina is obsessed with purity and greatly distrusts modern medicine. While Jude wants her to visit an obstetrician he decides to trust Mina's decision to rely more on alternative and traditional medicine, even going so far as to attend a meeting with a psychic, who declares the fetus an Indigo child. However once the baby is born Mina begins putting the infant on a vegan diet, which concerns Jude, who begins to secretly go against Mina's parenting techniques. This puts the two parents at odds with one another and Mina begins to further obsess about keeping the child pure, at one point feeding the child an anti-nutrient oil because Jude fed the child some meat. As things progress the relationship continues on a downward spiral that puts the child's well-being and life at risk.
