This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama tells the story of Daisy Werthan, an elderly, southern, Jewish woman who is committed to maintaining her independence. Upon crashing her car, however, her son Boolie arranges for her to have a chauffeur: an African-American man named Hoke Colburn. Although they are initially wary of each other, Hoke puts up with the somewhat crotchety Miss Daisy with dignity, and ultimately, they form a friendly bond.
