Richard is a white guy who has it all figured out. He's a great golfer and a better boss. But when he takes his Asian employee, Francis, out for a round of golf, Richard's self-righteousness quickly becomes the nastiest hazard they encounter. The two cross paths and points of view with an obnoxious rich white kid who mistreats his black caddy to an outrageous degree. But what might just be most outrageous is how much trouble Richard lands in because of his white middle-class assumptions about race and power.

A short Making of Little Black Caddy follows the film. Filmmaker Greg Liburd explains that the racism he encounters today is much subtler, but still very much exists-a fact that motivated him and co-director Peter Alexander to make this controversial short film. Behind-the-scenes discussions with the actors and other key personnel are featured.
