From the 1930s to the 1960s African-Americans would use the Green Book: a guide to the safer places to go on their travels. Don Shirley, an educated, distinguished musician, hires Tony Lip to be his concert tour chauffeur. The pianist sophisticated and black, his driver coarse-mannered, witty and white, they are people of integrity, brought together as they face blatant, dehumanising racial prejudice at all levels of society and class and from the guardians of law and order. Both make a journey which transforms their view of the world.
