The film is set in the late 1960s in Los Angeles, telling the story of Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), an actor in a western TV series, and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt), who are trying to make a name for themselves in the rapidly changing Hollywood landscape.

Director Quentin Tarantino is said to have drawn inspiration from his own experiences in 1969 as well as referencing historical moments of the time, including the Manson Family murders.
