Barton Fink is an intellectual playwright living in 1941 New York who has received critical acclaim with his first play. He is offered a well-paying job in Hollywood as a screenwriter and after some hesitation he accepts. In an effort to maintain what he sees as his connection with the "common man" Fink chooses an out-of-the-way and mostly deserted hotel as his lodgings. But things start to fall apart after he receives his first studio assignment; a B-movie about wrestling. Fink finds himself suffering from writer's block and culture shock and increasingly distracted by his neighbor, the larger-than-life Charlie Meadows.
