A well-regarded novelist, Harry Block (Allen), has a tendency to thinly-veil his own experiences in his work. His attitude for pills and whores, has left him with three ex-wives who hate him.

As he is about to be honored for his writing by the college that expelled him, he faces writer's block and the impending marriage of his latest flame. As scenes from his stories and novels pass and interact with him, Harry faces the people whose lives he has affected.
