Ray Dokes is fresh out of prison and fresh out of options. An ex-ballplayer released back into the once-rural Ontario of his childhood with just the clothes on his back, Ray is determined to stay out of trouble. Which means steering clear of Sonny Stanton.
Stanton, the rich and violent heir of a thoroughbred dynasty, is buying an entire concession of farmland for reasons he won't name. Standing in his way is the stubborn Etta Parr, Ray's old flame, who faces down Stanton in a last-ditch effort to save her family farm.
Ray's attempts to sidestep danger end when Sonny pushes things too far. Ray has a gang of colourful friends and a taste for revenge. The scheme is audacious. The players are unpredictable. And one false move will land Ray back in jail.
Poignant, fast-paced, and laugh-out-loud funny, All Hat is a rollicking tale of small-time scams and big-time characters.
