The rude awakening is that the way of life is very different and doors just because he has a new found degree are not just going to open and give him an opportunity. He finds that he is either over qualified or under. The apartment is less than stellar with whacky neighbors and he is getting very defeated. Brantley finally contacts his uncle Howard Prescott (Jordan) regarding work at his very impressive company. Uncle Howard is the CEO of Pemrose and was founded by his father-in-law.
Christy Wills (Slater) is the no hold barred financial wiz within the company. Christy is having an affair with Howard and she is awaiting him to leave his wife Vera but that does not seem to happen anytime soon. Howard finds out about this new wiz Carlton who he wonders potentially is a spy and asks Christy to get close to him and find out what the circumstances are and to dig deeper. A long weekend ensues at the country estate of Howard's and Vera's where Carlton, Christy, Brantley are all invited. It is one crazy weekend where there are many attracted to one another and a night within the house where people are going into each other's room sneaking around that is soo memorable! Will, Brantley get his dream girl Christy and job or get found out and fired you will have to watch to find out!!!
