Mack & Mabel tells the story of the tumultuous romantic and artistic relationship between silent movie director Mack Sennett and one of his biggest discoveries and stars, Mabel Normand. In a series of flashbacks, Sennett relates the glory days of Keystone Studios from 1911, when he discovered Normand through his creation of Sennett's Bathing Beauties and the Keystone Cops, to Normand's death from tuberculosis in 1930.
