Synopsis: The UK is about to switch its currency from Pounds to Euros, giving a gang a chance to rob the poorly-secured train loaded with money on its way to incineration. But, during the robbery, one of the big bags falls literally from the sky on Damian's playhouse, a 7-year old given to talking to saints. The boy then starts seeing what the world and the people around him are made of. Ethics, being human and the soul all come to the forefront in this film.

The French have said

au revoir to the franc.

The Germans have said

auf wiedersehen to the Deutschmark.

And the Portuguese have said

whatever to their thing.


Now it's our turn to say

goodbye to Sterling.

This Christmas

we are going to get the euro.

Goodbye old pound.

Everyone says

we are going to miss you.

- Come on!

- Faster! Faster!

- Hey come on!

- Faster!

I can't see ya!

Where are you?

I'm over here!

This is the main drag along here.

That's Portland.

Bisecting that at right angles,

is Lundy on that side.

On this side there's Fastnet.

What's yours?


Cromarty and German Bight.

Cul de sacs. Over here.

- I've come through.

- Come on! Come on, Damian!

There's a train coming!

Keep pedalling. Come on!


- Beat ya!

- Come on!

I'm gonna call it Serendipity.

- What does that mean?

- I don't know.

- Anyway it's number twenty.

- Upstairs!

- This is my room.

- And mine.

Get your own room.

The patron saint of

house removals is Saint Anne.

- Did you know that?

- No, I didn't know that, no.

Yeah, she lived in

the desert, obviously.

And when she wanted to move house.

Angels came, picked up her house

and took it to Italy.


She was Our Lady's mother.

What you on about Damian?

Saint Anne. I've got a picture.

Look. I don't care, just get

in the car, will ya? We're going'.

Go on! Get in the car!

- Was she in it at the time?

- Who?

Saint Anne.

When the angels did the...

you know the airlift?

I don't know.

Start with the money.

That's what our Anthony says.

That's what people

want to know about.

Like if you're moving house...

you don't say 'we're moving house

and the new one has got a green door.'

You say how much you're paying.

How much you got for the old one.

Mortgage. Interest rates.

Stamp duty. Solicitor's fees.

How much you'll get

if the new one goes up in value.

That's called equity.

Personally, I think, 'so what? '

Money's just a thing.

And things change.

One minute something's there

and you can cuddle up to it.

The next minute it's gone.

Like a Malteser.

That goes in the kitchen.

Is this fantastic or what?

Surprisingly spacious,

with attractive views.

Oh, that's Anthony's.

That must go upstairs and...

And anyway, in the end,

it turns out it wasn't about

the money after all.

That's it lads.

Up to the main bedroom.

Has anyone seen

where the phone points are?

Eh, where do I plug this in?

Oh, right, yeah.

Oh that looks good, that does.


this is what

we're having' tonight, yeah?

Before Countdown,

put the oven on.

After Countdown,

get a packet of these,

put them in there

with some oven chips, yeah?

It's for mum.

The time is on here, yeah.


That's how long

they have to stay in.

By the time they're ready,

I'll be back.

She may already have

won ten thousand pounds.

Her name has been entered in a draw.

- All she has to do is...

- Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Thank you.


Other sides.

Let's go.

Come on!

That's you.

Get your bags.

And your book bag, Damian.


Now remember

it's no good being clever,

you've got to be

the cleverest, yeah?

- Alright. See ya Dad.

- Good luck lads.

See ya.

Are you nervous?

A bit.

So everybody sitting up nicely?


Now we are talking, today,

about people we admire.

- Dminic?

- Roy Keane, Sir, Manchester United.

Very good, Roy Keane.

What about you Barry?

- Van Nistelrooy, sir.

- Van Nistelrooy, right.

Anyone got any heroes

who don't play for United?

- Jack?

- Robbie Fowler, Sir, City.

Alright, that's enough.


I don't know any footballers, sir.
