This is a heart-warming tale of two seemingly "untouchable" ends of a society. Phillipe (Francois Cluzet) is a wealthy man but a tetraplegic as a consequence of a paragliding accident. After his wife's demise, he decides to hire a carer, and takes an inexplicable liking for Driss (Omar Sy), an unemployed man with a criminal record. Driss accepts the job, being in need of a place to live. Slowly, their bond strengthens, until Driss realises he needs to move on.
