It centers on Marcus and Angela Lewis’s (played by Berry in the film) daughter Simone Graham (Tetona Jackson) and Bryson Broyer (son of Jaqueline Broyer, who was played by Robin Givens in the movie). The two are making moves as marketing professionals — like their parents. While they attempt to step out of their parents’ shadows, they try to navigate the terrain of relationships with their friends.
