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.Written by

This movie is very motivated. Very touchy. This movie is kind of movie that I will show to my children someday. My children have to see this movie. Very inspiring, very touchy, very interesting. This movie will soar your heart and imagination.
The boys who play Damian and Anthony are brilliant. The will be a good actor someday.Anthony is more reasonable than Damian. Damian is full fantasy, same with us, when we were kid.
This movie talk about 2 boys, brother, live with their father. They move to other town, after their mother died. Damian is a lot more weird than his brother. someday Damian found a bag full of money at his playhouse. Then he tells his brother and together they keep the money under his brother's bed.
Excellent movie from Danny Boyle. Danny Boyle is one of my favorite director.
