Synopsis

Newly paroled and in desperate need of a job, Dell is frustrated by the menial opportunities available to an ex-con. After finding himself at the wrong job interview Dell uses his irreverent charisma to charm paralyzed Park Avenue billionaire Phillip, who, despite protests from his chief-of-staff Yvonne, offers him the home aid position. Despite a rocky start, the two quickly realize how much they can learn from each other's experiences. From worlds apart, Phillip and Dell form an unlikely bond, bridging their differences and gaining invaluable wisdom in the process, giving each man a renewed sense of passion for all of life's possibilities.
