When a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley a world-class African-American pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on "The Green Book" to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger, as well as unexpected humanity and humor, they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime. Based on actual events.
