Acclaimed black concert pianist Don Shirley (Ali) sets out on a tour of the South, but in 1962 it’s an unwelcoming place for someone with his skin colour. He hires New York bouncer Tony Lip Vallelonga (Mortensen) to be both his driver and bodyguard, and during the long drive south they both come to realize that they have nothing on common dislike each other strongly. As the road trip goes on, and as Shirley encounters both receptive audiences and virulent racism, the two very different men begin forming a strong bond of friendship.
