Leo Whistler is a young screenwriter with a disastrous love life, a dark family secret and a career that isn’t. Then he gets his first big gig to write a TV movie about Blue Meadows, a blind environmentalist on day 722 of her tree-sit protest—and his life really begins to fall apart.
Hacksville is a coming-of-age tale for the man-child set and a subversive twist on the Hollywood novel.
