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.

The film takes place in the 1890s, with 2 men, one younger and the other much older, attacking and killing travelers camping in plains of the Wild West. After killing several men at a campsite by slitting their throats open, they steal their valuables and begin burning unneeded books and possessions. However, they desist after hearing a bizarre series of howls in the distance, and make for a nearby valley to avoid any pursuers. While traversing the valley, they come across a burial site, where the older man is attacked and savagely killed by an unseen figure. The younger man fires upon the figure as it charges at him, and the film cuts to black.
