Two brothers–seven-year-old Damian (Alex Etel) and nine-year-old Anthony (Lewis McGibbon)–have lost their mother, and now, just weeks before the UK is set to change to the euro, the boys find a gym bag filled with English pounds. The discovery presents a problem: what to do with the cash in the short period of time before English pounds will become worthless paper. Damian believes saints are advising him to give the money to the poor, but Anthony thinks they should spend it on themselves.
