Her concerned son Boolie reasons she no longer is able to drive herself, and over her strenuous objections hires the gentle, tactful, and wily black widower Hoke Colburn to be her chauffeur. As a Jew, Miss Daisy is also the victim of prejudice, and she gradually overcomes her subconscious bigotry to see Hoke as a true friend.
