Fight Club Movie Summary

Constantly traveling around the country as an insurance claim investigator can be grueling on a person’s body and their psyche. Our unnamed narrator not only lives that life, but it has driven him to the point of insomnia. Instead of prescribing the narrator sleeping pills, which can be addictive, his doctor advises him to visit a support group. That way he can see real suffering. The narrator has an obsession for balls, and elects to attend a meeting for men who have had testicular cancer. He finds relief in pretending to be a victim with the other members, and his insomnia goes away.

The narrator becomes addicted to support groups, and attends meetings across the city every day of the week. All goes well until Marla Singer shows up as an attendee at the testicular cancer support group. The narrator is bothered by the fact that Marla is doing the same thing he’s doing. She too pretends to be a victim at a variety of support groups to make herself feel better.

The narrator’s insomnia quickly returns. Instead of ridding himself of this false persona he has created, the narrator negotiates with Marla on which days they will attend certain meetings, so he doesn’t have to see her again. She agrees, and the two exchange phone numbers.
