Abstract:

R.J. Stevens is a successful television talk show host who sets aside his perfect life with his sweet son and celebrity girlfriend to attend his parents' golden wedding anniversary back home in Georgia. From the moment he arrives, all the reasons R.J. left to reinvent himself on the West Coast become clear. His siblings and cousins quickly put him in his place, reminding him that his name is actually Roscoe Jenkins. His sweet mother watches impassively while R.J.'s dad does nothing to mask his disapproval. R.J. would be content to wait out the anniversary events and go home. The arrival of an old girlfriend he once loved but couldn't keep during his adolescence changes everything, bringing out the competitive survivor within.
