He is a young man who is struggling to find his place in the world, and he spends most of his time hanging out with his friends and getting into trouble.

Pierce's older brother Wendell (Jessie Holmes) is a successful businessman who is engaged to a beautiful woman named Suzanne (Gaye Shannon-Burnett). Wendell and Suzanne are planning their wedding, and Pierce is not looking forward to the event because he feels like he is not an important part of his brother's life. He also feels like he does not fit in with his family because he is not as successful or as driven as Wendell.

As the wedding approaches, Pierce begins to feel more and more isolated from his family. He spends more time with his friends and starts to neglect his job at his father's dry cleaning business. One night, Pierce gets into a fight with one of his friends and ends up getting arrested. His family bails him out of jail, but they are all angry with him for causing trouble.

At the wedding, Pierce feels like an outsider. He is uncomfortable in his suit and tie, and he does not fit in with the other guests. Wendell's fiancé Suzanne is also uncomfortable with Pierce, and she makes it clear that she does not approve of his behavior. Pierce's mother is the only person who seems to understand him, but even she is disappointed in his actions.

As the wedding reception gets underway, tensions rise between Pierce and his family. Wendell and Suzanne are upset with Pierce for causing a scene at the dinner table, and Pierce's father is angry with him for neglecting his responsibilities at the dry cleaning business. Pierce's mother tries to mediate the situation, but it only makes things worse.

Despite the tensions, Pierce tries to make the best of the situation. He dances with his mother and tries to have a good time. However, things take a turn for the worse when he sees Suzanne flirting with one of his friends. Pierce confronts her about it, and she storms out of the reception in a rage.

After the wedding, Pierce realizes that he needs to make some changes in his life. He decides to take responsibility for his actions and to start working harder at the dry cleaning business. He also tries to mend his relationship with Wendell and Suzanne by apologizing for his behavior.
