Paterson and Laura live in Paterson, NJ. They have a dog named Marvin. Paterson drives a city bus, and Laura does creative things at home. He compliments her on her creations. He also writes poetry; she encourages him to publish it. Poet William Carlos Willams lived in the same part of New Jersey and wrote a long poem titled Paterson set in Paterson. The film is gentle.
