This drama centers on Hank Chinaski, the fictional alter-ego of "Factotum" author Charles Bukowski, who wanders around Los Angeles, CA trying to live off jobs which don't interfere with his primary interest, which is writing. Along the way, he fends off the distractions offered by women, drinking and gambling.
Sean Penn was the first choice for the role of Henry Chinaski.

When Hank and Jan go to the newspaper to try to get Hank's paycheck for the second time, Jan is seen wearing the same white dress she wore the day before, but a short time later, when Hank looks out the window at her waiting for him below, she appears to be wearing a pink top and blue shorts or skirt.
