The storyline begins in Atlanta in the 1940s, from a time when racial blackness still haunted and caused a wave of outrage among American citizens. Miss Daisy Werthan is a respectable Jewish lady, desperate to admit that she is now rich and ... old. The widow's son, after she once decided to go to the city, drove into a neighbor's yard by car, insists on hiring a personal chauffeur for her. However, a rich American full of prejudices and accustomed to independence does not want to use the services of a black driver in any way, believing that she does not need any chauffeur.
But the worldly wisdom and easy character of Hoke Colburn, who previously served with a local judge, are able to melt the ice in the heart of even such an aristocratic lady with a difficult disposition like Daisy Werthan. True, it will take a very long time for Hawk to reach mutual understanding and get her affection and friendship. A poignant story about the friendship of two very different people, about a friendship lasting twenty years ...
