Summary
Fink is a New York playwright who reluctantly relocates to Hollywood to write screenplays. Ordered to write a low budget screenplay about wrestling, Fink manages to type one sentence and then ... nothing. Although his chatty insurance salesman neighbor Charlie helps out by teaching Fink about wrestling, the clock ticks, the temperature rises, and Fink's life spins more and more out of control
