What would you do if you found a bag full of money?  Lots of money?  More money than you have ever seen before?  Damien Cunningham has to figure this out for himself.  Obsessed with saints and religion, Damien is out in his hermitage praying, a bag fell from the sky.  Filled with money.  The money was on the way to be burned as England is changing to the euro in just a few days.  Damien and his brother Anthony decide to spend the money.  After all, it doesn't really belong to anyone.  It was just going to be destroyed.  Why not use the money?  Anthony wants to buy things, Damien wants to give it to the poor.  And the people who stole it in the first place want it back.
