There's a killer on the loose in the sleepy South Carolina island town of Pawleys Island.

A roguishly handsome yet reluctant hero and a cast of the most memorable characters you’ll ever meet collide in this zany and raucous tropical thriller by David Berens.

Rambling beach bum, Troy Bodean, is the new owner of an outback tea-stained, straw cowboy hat with a colorful peacock plume. He found the unlucky hat in an abandoned aluminum fishing boat and decided the smell of Old Spice and lack of an owner made it his for the taking. Little did he know there was a misplaced cashier's check hidden inside.

Unbeknownst to our hero, he'd attracted a whole bevy of killers out to kill him when he put the hat on his head. From Daisy Mae and Ellie Mae Gallup, the mothers of Troy's alleged love child, to the bumbling New Zealander assassins, Darren The Body McGlashen and Man'Ti, to the most Böhring, yet shady mill CEO in the business... they all have one thing on their minds—get that hat.

And Troy has no idea why. Laugh, ache, and groan as the chase for Troy and his hat lead him on the wildest ride on and around Pawleys Island, South Carolina in history. Who knows where it will all end?
