Eddie Mannix wants to fix Hollywood. More specifically, he wants to fix Capitol Pictures. He's a cleaner-upper of sorts, solving problems for actors and filmmakers in the city of sin. From disgruntled directors and musical cowboys to gorgeous dancers and stunning swimmers. Drama doesn't stop at the silver screen; it continues behind the scenes as well. When Baird Whitlock is kidnapped while in costume for the new Hollywood epic "Hail Caesar!", his kidnappers demand a hefty ransom for his safe return. Now, Mannix is tasked by the studio to track down Whitlock and deliver him safely back to the set before his valuable life gets snuffed out like a sub-par summer blockbuster; but the job quickly evolves into a black hole of scandal, crime, and deceit. Mannix finds himself amidst an industry coverup that could not only threaten the wellbeing of his client, but also his own.
