Samson Shillitoe, a poet, lives in Greenwich Village area of New York City with Rhoda, a waitress who stands by him through all his troubles. When Samson cannot find the inspiration to finish his latest poem, he becomes belligerent and depressed. Samson is continually pursued by a debt collector after his late alimony payments to a previous wife; if Samson doesn’t pay he will be arrested. Samson eventually assaults a police detective who accompanies the debt collector. Samson has other troubles when he loses his job as an office cleaner when he has sex with a secretary whilst his carpet cleaning machinery fills the office with soap suds. However, Samson does earn a $200 fee for doing a recital of his poetry to a woman’s group that ends in disaster.

On Samson’s behalf, but unknown to him, Rhoda seeks the help of psychiatrist Dr. West, who claims to be able to cure writer’s block. Rhoda gives Dr. West the $200 she collected for Samson’s lecture to treat Samson for what she fears will become suicidal depression if he can’t finish his poem. Dr. West reluctantly agrees to see him, and when Samson confronts the Doctor about the return of his money, West is fascinated by Shillitoe and persuades him to become a patient. In order for Samson to be away from the chaos of his life in the city that he might finish his poem, Dr. West arranges a stay for him in a sanitarium upstate.
