A rich Frenchman takes a young man from the projects under his wing as his caretaker after he is left a quadriplegic following a paragliding accident.

Philippe, an intellectual and aristocrat living in Paris, is in the process of interviewing potential live-in caretakers after becoming a quadriplegic at the hands of a paragliding accident when an African immigrant named Driss cuts to the front of the line and asks him to sign a procedural job-search document. Unwilling to let the young man slide right back into the system so fast, Philippe challenges Driss to work as his caretaker for a month, forming an unlikely bond and mentorship of sorts with him in the process.
