Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued Jewish widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son that henceforth she must rely on the services of a chauffeur because she has recently demolished another car. The person he hires for the job is a thoughtful, unemployed black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain and who, in turn, is not impressed with his employer's patronizing tone and, he believes, her latent prejudice. Set in the Deep South of 1948, the story spans twenty-five years, and the two, despite their mutual differences, grow ever closer and realize they have more in common than they ever believed possible - and that times and circumstances would ever allow them to publicly admit.
