Based on the novel by cult author Charles Bukowski and adapted by Hamer and Jim Stark, "Factotum" is the story of a man living on the edge; of a writer willing to risk everything to make sure his life is poetry. Henry Chinaski (Dillon) works in factories and warehouses to support what he really wants to do: drink, bet the horses, take up with women as rootless as he is and, above all write stories no one wants to publish.
