Two unlikely travelling companions must navigate the racism of the southern United States in 1962, in this road-trip comedy-drama based on a true story.

Tony Lip, an uneducated, working-class nightclub bouncer, is hired by Dr Don Shirley, a sophisticated world-class pianist, to accompany him on a concert tour. Dr Shirley, as an African-American heading into the deep south, is looking for a chauffeur who can handle himself – along with any threats that might arise.
