The time: 1948. The place: Atlanta, Georgia. Daisy Werthan, age 72, is in her living room, with her son Boolie, age 40. She has crashed her car, and Boolie insists that she have a driver. Boolie interviews Hoke Coleburn, an unemployed black man of around 60. Over the next 25 years Hoke drives “Miss Daisy”. They are initially wary of each other, and Hoke puts up with the somewhat crotchety Miss Daisy with dignity. She teaches Hoke to read, having been a teacher. Ultimately, they form a friendly bond, with Miss Daisy inviting Hoke to accompany her to a dinner for Martin Luther King, Jr
