A rich man from the Upper East Side is a paraplegic who relies on a wheelchair and caretaker to have any type of a decent life. He has reached a point where he has thoughts about giving up. Some think he has a death wish.
His assistant, Yvonne, helps set him up with a new caretaker.
Dell, divorced and down on his luck after being released from a prison sentence, had merely hoped to make his parole officer happy with this new job.
As the two men learn more about each other, an unlikely friendship blooms that brings purpose to both of their depressing lives.
