Patients is a 2016 French drama directed by Grand Corps Malade and Mehdi Idir.
Following a serious sports accident in a swimming pool, Ben, now an incomplete quadriplegic, arrives in a rehabilitation center. He meets other handicapped people (tetraplegics, paraplegics, traumatized crania), all victims of accidents, as well as a handicapped since his early childhood. Between impotence, despair and resignation, in the daily struggle to learn to move a finger or to hold a fork, some slowly find a little mobility while others receive the verdict of the handicap for life. Despite everything, hope and friendship help them endure their difficulties.
