Riggan Thomson (Keaton) is a washed-up Hollywood actor who once played the superhero Birdman in three blockbuster movies, before leaving the multi-billion-dollar franchise. More than 20 years after "Birdman," Riggan wants to reinvent his career by writing, directing, and starring in a play, an adaptation of Raymond Carver's short story What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. The play is produced by Riggan's best friend/lawyer Jake (Galifianakis), and stars Riggan's girlfriend Laura, first-time-Broadway-actress Lesley (Watts), and Mike (Norton). Riggan's daughter Sam (Stone), a recovering drug addict, serves as his spunky, bedraggled assistant. In order to afford Mike as a replacement actor (after Riggan supposedly tries to kill the first actor by causing a spotlight to fall on him during a rehearsal), Riggan refinances a house that should belong to his daughter, Sam, rendering him flat broke. Throughout all of this, Riggan is mocked and bolstered by his voice as Birdman, which is associated with a "Birdman 3" movie poster in his dressing room.
