Driving Miss Daisy

Ages 10 – 110

When Daisy, an aging Southern matron, nearly wrecks her brand-new 1948 Packard backing it out of the driveway, her wealthy son hires Hoke, a kind black man, to serve as her chauffeur. Sparks fly. The proud, paranoid and frequently crotchety Miss Daisy refuses to hand over her independence, and tries Hoke’s  considerable patience. As difficult as she is, he is equally stubborn in his commitment to serve with a sunny disposition. Slowly, trust develops. Then respect. Then friendship, chronicling 25 years in Daisy and Hoke’s relationship.
