Summary
Inglewood, a Los Angeles suburb, is called the Wood. It is largely home to Black middle class families. Mike, Slim, and Roland have been best friends since junior high. It's three hours before Roland's wedding and he has a bad case of cold feet. Mike and Slim must sober him up and help him decide if he wants to go through with the wedding. In flashbacks, they recall key moments of their friendship, including the rites of passage from boys to men
