At the website of Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Untouchable:

"The very rich, cultivated widower Philippe is paralysed after an accident, and needs to use a wheelchair. When Philippe hires a new assistant, his choice is the street-smart, petty criminal Driss, who is really just interested in going on the dole. Against all odds, these two develop a close friendship, despite the differences in their social and cultural background.
(...)

Untouchable is based on the success movie from 2011, one of the most seen French movies."
