Jackie's life is on the verge of coming together. He was just released from jail, joined AA, and has a new sponsor helping him stay clean and sober. Then there's Veronica, his childhood sweetheart. When the smell of Aqua Velva, and a hat comes between them, sparks fly. Fast, furious and filled with sharp poetic dialogue and flawed, colorful, wounded characters, The Motherf**ker with the Hat crackles with truth, humor and a sense of hope. A dark comic tale about friendship, love, addiction, and the difficulties of adulthood in New York City.
