The film shows seven days from the life of a bus driver named Paterson living in the city of Paterson with his wife Laura and an English Bulldog Marvin. While Paterson is a good-natured and rather quiet man living a monotonous life, Laura usually acts restless. She always has new plans for her future career, from musician to baker to interior decorator. While Laura pursues her creative vein in decorating the home, Paterson is dedicated to poetry. Laura is constantly trying to persuade her husband to publish his poems, but he completely rejects them. Paterson derives his work from his work; he daily observes the passengers the events taking place before him while driving and carves them into poetry in a park. The famous Passaic River waterfall, the clutter of his passengers here and there, inspires his imagination and inspires him to write. In the evening Paterson always goes with the dog Gassi and returns to exactly one beer in his main dump. For Laura, Marvin is a little bit of a substitute for a child; for Paterson, the dog is rather a burden, but he does not show much. The film neatly blends the victories and defeats of daily life, with a pinch of poetry in its own.
