FACTOTUM
FACTOTUM


SYNOPSIS
Henry Chinaski works as a manual laborer in factories and warehouses in order to subsidize a life of drinking, race-track betting, skirt-chasing, and most of all, writing stories that no publisher will touch. Based on the novel by Charles Bukowski, "Factotum" is the story of a man living on the edge, of a writer who is willing to risk everything to make sure that his life is his poetry.
