When an accident leaves Phillippe (Francois Cluzet) a quadriplegic, the millionaire hires an ex-con (Omar Sy) to be his caregiver. Even more surprising than his choice is the unlikely friendship that grows between the two men. This French language film with English subtitles is based on a true story.
