Tony Lip is uneducated & working class, his background couldn’t be much more different to that of Dr. Don Shirley, a world-class pianist on a tour of the US. Don is looking for a chauffeur who can handle any threats that might arise as he heads into the Deep South, & he’s aware that, as an African-American man, he will inevitably face racism and discrimination on his journey. Don hires Tony to be his driver & bodyguard, however, Tony’s own prejudices quickly become apparent, but time spent with Don proves to be a revelation. SUBTITLED. Shown with English subtitles switched on.
