Felipe, a wealthy businessman who has become quadriplegic due to an accident, is looking for a therapeutic assistant. Although Felipe has several qualified candidates who can do the job, he decides to hire the gardener's assistant, Tito, who lacks the experience and the skills needed.
The people closest to Felipe try to dissuade him from employing Tito but he remains firm in his decision because Tito is the only person who doesn’t treat him with pity. What follows is a hilariously challenging relationship that will test both men and teach them both about what matters most in life.
