Coming Of Age
Editors Note
Note A mere three hours before he's scheduled to walk down the aisle, Roland (Taye Diggs--the man who helped Stella reclaim her groove) gets cold feet. Now it's up to his best buddies Slim (Richard T. Jones) and Mike (Omar Epps) to ease his pre-nuptial jitters and get him to the church on time--a task that inspires a trip down memory lane to their coming-of-age days in "The Wood" (Inglewood, California) during the 1980s.
