A Fall from Grace opens with an older woman on the ledge of a roof asking how she could be so stupid. Distracted or pushed by the wind of a helicopter, the woman falls off the roof and we’ve witnessed he first tragedy of the movie. Using rudimentary foreshadowing, we know it must somehow be related, but we don’t quite know yet. The movie escalates as quickly as any crazy relationship would but Grace asks herself all the questions we wonder; How could she let this happen? Is she really that stupid? But the worst part about questioning Grace is that we are actually questioning — Does this old woman really think this young man could ever love her? No one thinks they are dumb enough to fall for a con artist… but con artists aren’t dumb. In addition, we begin to question the law and the system as we watch a public defendant give her all.
What would you do with 2.4 Billion Euros?

With endless planning and wit, the group puts the government to the test when it comes to keeping order, and maintaining their morals. Just like the people of Spain, who being to applaud the robbers for stealing from the rich and giving back to the poor, we learn to love these characters, while they find a way to love themselves and trust each other.
