Alcolhlic Henry Chinaski believes that life is free and yours to live as you desire. He spends his days drinking, listening to the radio, fighting a bartender named Eddy, and composing the occasional poem. After Henry is thrown out of his regular bar, he finds a new bar and meets Wanda, a barfly. Then Henry gets a visit from a literary agent who has decided to publish one of his stories. He follows the agent home in order to receive his payment and sleeps with her infuriating Wanda in the process.
