His son, Junior (Brandon Wardell), and he decide to go on a road trip with their father and are able to see his family on their trip. His mother is in conflict with his aunt Theresa, he finds out his cousin Eugene owes a group of men money, and a cop who is also his ex (Tiffany Haddish) pulls over his car as he comes home from work.
